This research project aims to study the effect of the addition of SiO2 into tricalcium phosphate matrix to create new bone cement composite materials, investigating the bioactivity and osteoblastic cell expression of these new compounds which are tailored for orthopedic applications, specifically for dental prosthesis and for tackle bone infection. The basic materials were developed at Research Unit Analysis and Process Applied to the Environment, University of Monastir, Tunisia.
