    Abstract: Bioactive glass is a prominent biomaterial that can bind with both soft and hard tissues when in contact with body fluid. This study aims to find out how silicon concentration affects the cytotoxicity and bioactivity of bioactive glass. The 58S, 68S, and 76S BG particles were synthesized using a spray pyrolysis method. XRD, SEM, FTIR, and BET were ... Show More
