Abstract

This study investigates the mechanical and ion-release properties of potentially bioactive amorphous calcium phosphate composites derived from three types of urethane dimethacrylate resins. Both the biaxial flexure strength, especially after immersion in buffered saline, and the release patterns of calcium and phosphate ions were influenced by the structure of the polymeric matrices of the composites.
