Fabrication of Novel Biodegradable α-Tricalcium Phosphate Cement Set by Chelating Capability of Inositol Phosphate and Its Biocompatibility

Figure 7

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).
