Physical and radiopaque characterisation of acrylic bone cements containing an organobismuth compound as a radiopacifier

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The water sorption and desorption characteristics of triphenyl bismuth (TPB)-cements were studied. The radiopacity of TPB was evaluated in order to assess its contrast in comparison to BaSO<sub>4</sub>-containing cements. It was observed that TPB-cements absorb/ desorp less water than BaSO<sub>4</sub> cements (BS) due to the hydrophobic nature of TPB. It was shown that the addition of TPB to acrylic cements results in the formation of homogeneous system as a result of its solubility in MMA.
