In previous works, the effects on the devitrification mechanism of a certain composition calcium phosphate with additives of TiO2, SiO2, Al2O3, CeO2 have been studied. It was found that some metal oxide additives played a key role as the nucleation agent in calcium phosphate glass-ceramics, and the devitrification mechanism of calcium phosphate glass system was changed drastically by addition such as metal oxide. Hydroxyapatite (HAp), tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and β-calcium phosphate (β-CaP2O6) whisker are the three most biologically compatible materials to human bone in bio-ceramics field. In this work, the effect on devitrification mechanism and the physical properties of certain composition calcium phosphate glass with three above additives were investigated, and the result shown that although no fine crystalline was induced in the certain composition of calcium phosphate glass when a large amount of additive was added, but such additives play a catalyst role by lowering the activation energies of devitrification. It would supplement the mechanical properties and the biocompatibility for the calcium phosphate glasses.
