Degradable iron-phosphate glasses with the composition of (CaO)(0.30)-(Na2O)(0.20-x)-(Fe2O3)(x)-(P2O5)(0.50), x = 0.01-0.05, were studied by Fe K-edge X-ray absorption spectroscopy (both near-edge, XANES, and extended, EXAFS). The addition of up to 5 mol% iron oxide is known to enhance the durability of the phosphate glass while maintaining biocompatibility. The results from the two techniques used here both show that iron is in the Fe(III) oxidation state and has octahedral coordination. This suggests that Fe is cross-linking the phosphate chains and therefore strengthening the network structure, resulting improved chemical durability of the glasses. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.
