Title: Properties and Structure of RO-R2O-Na2O-Al2O3-P2O5 Glasses

Abstract

The properties and structural features of RO-R2O-Na 2O-Al2O3-P2O5 (R= Mg, Ca, Ba and RO= Li) glasses in the system have been investigated. The properties of those glasses seem to depend on the field strength of the alkali or alkali-earth ions in glasses as in silicate glasses. Infrared (IR) spectroscopy indicates that the glass network is dominated by bridging P-tetrahedral present in glasses with O/P {approx_equal} 3.0. The variation in physical properties of the glasses seem to be closely related to the variation in structure of the glasses and could be explained by simple mechanism such as field strength and differences in mass.

  • Raman spectroscopic technique was applied to study complex borosilicate glasses to elucidate Al2O3, B2O3, Na2O, and SiO2 effects on the network structure evolution with an emphasis on the nepheline formation tendency in the glasses. An origin of the observed Raman band near 850 cm-1 in the quenched glass samples was elucidated by studying the quenched and slowly cooled samples using a variety of spectroscopic methods. The results suggested that the characteristic Raman band near 850 cm-1 was closely related to the nepheline-like nanocrystals formed in the quenched glass samples. Composition models for both the characteristic Raman band intensity and liquidusmore » were developed. The two models provide a consistent outcome that increase in B2O3 and SiO2 decreases the Raman band intensity, or nepheline formation tendency, and liquidus, whereas increase Al2O3 and Na2O increases the Raman band intensity, or nepheline formation tendency, and liquidus temperture.« less
  • Raman spectroscopy was applied to complex sodium alumino-borosilicate glasses that precipitate nepheline as their primary phase. The main focus was on the Raman band at 850 cm-1 wavenumber observed in quenched glasses. Based on the literature, the 850 cm-1 band was assigned to AlIV-O-Si units in which tetrahedral AlIV is substituted for Si in the network, creating[AlO4/2]- anions that are charge-balanced by Na+ cations. The same glasses with various temperature histories were examined with optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electronic microscopy. The results indicated that the 850 cm-1 Raman band was associated with nanocrystals that formed in themore » melts and were preserved in the quenched samples. The chemistry of these nanocrystals resembled nepheline. Models relating the intensity of the Raman band at 850 cm-1 and the liquidus temperature (TL) to glass composition revealed that a relationship exists between these two properties. An increase in B2O3 and Si O2 decreased the Raman band intensity and the TL, whereas an increase in Al2O3 and Na2O increased both properties. These effects were attributed to the influence of various oxides on the Na+[AlO4/2]- activity in the melt.« less
  • The kinetics of matrix dissolution and alkali-exchange for a series of sodium aluminosilicate glass compositions was determined at constant temperature and solution pH(D) under conditions of silica-saturation. Steady state release rate for sodium was 10 to 50 times faster than the rate of matrix dissolution, demonstrating that alkali exchange is an important long-term reaction mechanism that must be considered when modeling systems near saturation with respect to dissolved glass components. Sodium release rates were 30% slower in D2O compared to rates in H2O; but matrix dissolution rates were unaffected. These results are consistent with rupture of the O-H bond asmore » the rate-limiting reaction in Na+-H+ exchange whereas matrix dissolution is controlled by OH- or H2O catalyzed hydrolysis of Si-O-Si and Si-O-Al bonds. Changes in Na exchange rate with increasing Al2O3 content could not be reconciled with changes in the number of non-bridging oxygen (NBO) sites in the glass alone. A simple model was used to estimate a structural energy barrier for alkali ion exchange using Na-O bond length and coordination as measured by Na K-edge XANES spectroscopy, and binding energy shifts for Si-O-Na sites measured by XPS. The energy barrier was calculated to increase from 34 kJ/mol for Na2O?2SiO2 glass to 50 kJ/mol for a glass containing 15 mol% Al2O3, consistent with stronger bonding of Na on NBO sites and increasing mechanical stiffness of the glass network with increasing Al content. The calculated ion-exchange enthalpies were then used to calculate Na ion exchange rates as a function of glass composition. Agreement between the calculated and measured Na ion exchange rates was excellent.« less
  • The present study investigates the influence of SrO on structure, apatite forming ability, physico-chemical degradation and sintering behaviour of melt-quenched bioactive glasses with composition: mol.% (36.07 – x) CaO – x SrO - 19.24 MgO – 5.61 P2O5 – 38.49 SiO2 – 0.59 CaF2, where x varies between 0 – 10. The detailed structural analysis of glasses has been made by infra red spectroscopy (FTIR) and magic angle spinning-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MAS-NMR). Silicon was predominantly present as Q2 (Si) species while phosphorus was found in orthophosphate type environment in all the investigated glasses. The apatite forming ability of glassesmore » was investigated by immersion of glass powders in simulated body fluid (SBF) for time durations varying between 1 h – 7 days. While increasing Sr2+/Ca2+ ratio in glasses did not affect the structure of glasses significantly, their apatite forming ability was decreased considerably. Further, physico-chemical degradation of glasses has been studied in accordance with ISO 10993-14 “Biological evaluation of medical devices – Part 14: Identification and quantification of degradation products from ceramics” in Tris HCl and citric acid buffer and the possible implications of ion release profile from glasses in different solutions has been discussed. The addition of strontium in glasses led to a 7-fold decrease in chemical degradation of glasses in Tris-HCl. The sintering of glass powders rendered glass-ceramics (GCs) with varying degree of crystallinity and good flexural strength (98-131 MPa) where the mechanical properties depend on the nature and amount of crystalline phases present in GCs.« less
