Abstract

Glass polyalkenoate cements (GPCs) have exhibited potential as bone cements. This study investigates the effect of substituting TiO2 for SiO2 in the glass phase and the subsequent effect on cement rheology, mechanical properties, ion release and antibacterial properties. Glass characterization revealed a reduction in glass transition temperature (T g) from 685 to 669 C with the addition of 6 mol % TiO2 (AT-2). Magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS-NMR) revealed a shift from -81 ppm to -76pmm when comparing a Control glass to AT-2, indicating de-polymerization of the Si network. The incorporation of TiO2 also increased the working time (Tw) from 19 to 61 s and setting time (Ts) from 70 to 427 s. The maximum compressive strength (σc) increased from 64 to 85 MPa. Ion release studies determined that the addition of Ti to the glass reduced the release of zinc, calcium and strontium ions, with low concentrations of titanium being released. Antibacterial testing in E. coli resulted in greater bactericidal effects when tested in aqueous broth for both titanium containing cements.
