Abstract

The IR spectrum of the Bioglass 45S5 (of composition 46.1 SiO2, 24.4 Na2O, 26.9 CaO, and 2.6 P2O5mol %) has been simulated by means of periodic ab initio B3LYP calculations. The initial glass structureunit cell envisaging 78 atoms was generated through a melt quench process by means of classical moleculardynamics simulations. The molecular mechanics optimized unit cell has then been fully reoptimized(both unit-cell parameters and internal coordinates) at B3LYP level in a periodic approach using Gaussianbasis sets of double- quality by means of the CRYSTAL06 code. Although long-range structural propertiescannot be modeled by using this ab initio approach because of the intrinsic amorphous nature of theglass, the quantum mechanical simulation proved to be extremely effective in predicting and analyzingthe vibrational features of this biomaterial. The effect of modifiers Na and Ca cations on the networkdynamics has been assessed by comparing the 45S5 vibrational spectrum with that of amorphous V-SiO2,both simulated at the B3LYP level. A detailed assignment of each spectral peak to the correspondingvibrational mode of the two glasses has been addressed and the role of cation modifiers on the vibrationalfeatures has been analyzed in greater details. This may be useful to support further IR and Ramaninvestigations of the bulk structure of these materials.
