Large pore volumes and highly accessible mesopore surface areas are present in highly ordered mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBGs) prepared by a block copolymer templating approach under non-aqueous conditions. These glasses have a high bone-forming bioactivity in vitro, as shown by immersing them in simulated body fluid (SBF) and monitoring the formation of hydroxycarbonate apatite (HCA) on the surface (see electron micrographs).
