Abstract

Forsterite (Mg 2 SiO 4 ) was chosen as a new candidate for bone implant application because of its superior fracture toughness and good bioactivity. However, synthesizing pure forsterite has been a challenge to many researchers because of its inability to eliminate secondary phases that have similar chemical compounds as forsterite. Attritor mill was introduced to form pure forsterite via solid-state method through the reaction between magnesium carbonate (MgCO 3 ) and talc (Mg 3 Si 4 (OH) 2 ). Attritor-milled samples showed superior mechanical properties compared with ball-milled samples because of the smaller particle size of the former which in turn eliminated the secondary phases at low sintering temperature.
