Preparation and characterization of mesoporous Lanthanum-doped bioactive glass nanoparticles
In this study, novel compositions of mesoporous Bioglass (BG) and Lanthanum-doped BG (La-BG) were prepared using the sol-gel method. Microstructure analysis of the produced composites was performed using XRD, FESEM, FTIR, TGA, and BET techniques. The XRD patterns of BG and La-BG show a good match with the combeite phase. The silicate and phosphate groups in the BG and La-BG lattice were detected in FTIR spectra. The BG particles were spherical, with a surface area of 11.54 m2/g, a pore volume of 0.02491cc/g, and a pore size of 31.35Å. With the addition of La, the BG structure revealed (i) increased crystallinity of diffraction peaks, (ii) the particles changed from a spherical to a petal-like shape with an expansion in surface area and pore volume, and (iii) increased thermal stability of the BG structure. In conclusion, BG's physiochemical characteristics were greatly enhanced by adding La.
