In vitro degradation and surface bioactivity of iron-matrix composites containing silicate-based bioceramicWang, S (author), Xu, Y (author), Zhou, J. (author), Li, H (author), Chang, Jiang (author), Huan, Z (author)Iron-matrix composites with calcium silicate (CS) bioceramic as the reinforcing phase were fabricated through powder metallurgy processes. The microstructures, mechanical properties, apatite deposition and biodegradation behavior of the Fe-CS composites, as well as cell attachment and proliferation onjournal article 2017
their surfaces, were characterized. In...
