Advanced inorganic materials for different application areas

Kollaborator: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini

The current activities reside in two main research areas; namely bioactive glasses for bone tissue engineering (BTE) and glass-ceramics for sustainable materials. In the field of BTE, scaffolds based on a variety of silicate bioactive glasses are being developed and characterized. Mainly the foam replica technique [1] is used to fabricate highly porous scaffolds and the novel scaffolds are functionalized by incorporating surface coatings to improve their physical and biological properties.
