Fabrication of Novel Biodegradable α-Tricalcium Phosphate Cement Set by Chelating Capability of Inositol Phosphate and Its Biocompatibility
HAp content of the cement specimens after setting for 24 h, fabricated from the α-TCP powders with (a) and without (b) IP6 surface modification at P/L = 1/0.40 [g/cm3]. Error bars indicated standard error of the mean (). The asterisks (*) showed that by test. HAp contents in α-TCP0, α-TCP60, and α-TCP120 cement specimens with and without IP6 surface modification slightly increased with milling time and were more than those in the starting cement powders. The HAp contents in the α-TCP180 and IP6-α-TCP180 cement specimens were two times more than those in other cement specimens.
