Abstract

The bioactivity behaviour of SBA-15, MCM-48, MCM-41 mesoporous materials, is revisited in this paper. The influence of their different textural and structural properties on apatite formation is outlined and strategies to modify their kinetics are proven and discussed. On the basis of the experimental data showing the feasibility of control of the bioactivity kinetics on mesoporous materials, together with their controlled drug release abilities, new possibilities for tissue engineering developments are proposed.
