Fabrication of Novel Biodegradable α-Tricalcium Phosphate Cement Set by Chelating Capability of Inositol Phosphate and Its Biocompatibility
Compressive strength (a) and relative density (b) 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 asterisk (*) showed that by test. The maximum compressive strength of the IP6-α-TCP cement specimens mostly composed of α-TCP phase was MPa for the IP6-α-TCP120 cement specimen; whereas, the compressive strength of the α-TCP180 cement specimens composed of α-TCP/HAp biphase was the highest ( MPa).
