Then the samples were subject to sintering at different temperatures. 5 Sol-Gel Synthesis A sol is a dispersion of colloidal particles, with diameter less than 100 nm, in liquid, and a gel is a three-dimensional, interconnected network formed from liquid. Sol-gel, being a rapidly advancing technology, is a low-temperature route for the synthesis and coating of ceramics, glasses, glass ceramics, and composites based on chemical solution reaction [ 7 , 8 ] . Sol-gel approach offers adjustable composition for bioceramics.

For example, most of the loaded dental HA implants were broken within one year. 67, as schematically shown in Fig. 2 . 6 . 7 Schematic plots of fracture toughness (KIC) and strength (bending, compressive and tensile) as a function of porosity of HA materials. ) 24 2 Bioactive Ceramics: Structure, Synthesis, and Mechanical Properties The mechanical properties of HA materials are affected strongly by the porosity of samples. For example, strength of HA samples decreases exponentially with the increasing porosity as schematically shown in Fig.

The porous substrates are subsequently immersed into the mixture. After the porous substrates are completely infiltrated, they are spun briefly in a high-speed centrifuge to remove excess solution. Coated substrates are dried in an oven at 100°C. The dried specimens are heated in air to 400 °C for 1 h to burn out the organic binder from suspension. During the burnout process, a slow and controlled heating rate is necessary to avoid bubbling in the coating. Then the samples are subject to sintering at different temperatures.
