The incorporation of boron into bioglasses has recently attracted interest owing to increased bioactivity, improved biocompatibility and antibacterial function. In addition, borate formulations serve to enhance the mechanical stability of bioglasses. Despite this considerable interest, to the present date no information is available regarding the chemical nature of the borate species and its structural integration in the bioglass network. The present proposal addresses this issue using advanced solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques in a number of standard bioglass formulations such as the 45S5 and the biosilicate (Na2O-CaO-SiO2-P2O5) systems prepared either by melt-cooling or by the sol-gel method. In parallel, the bioactivity will be tested by measuring the calcium, boron and phosphorus dissolution kinetics of these glasses in simulated body fluid, and the formation of hydroxyapatite carbonate will be monitored using attenuated reflectance infrared spectroscopy and NMR spectroscopy of recovered samples.
