|Abstract:||The influence of chemical factors on trivalent metal ions in the prevention of calcification of glutaraldehyde treated biological tissue has been explored. The results indicate that the chemical link lies in the hard character of the trivalent metal ions. Metal ions with the hardest character appear to have the best chance of reacting with oxygen atoms of the phosphate groups at nucleation sites of hydroxyapatite. This disrupts the nucleation and thus prevents calcification in glutaraldehyde treated biological tissue.|
