Glasses are common in use now days. These are used in different applications like domestic, automobile, telecommunication etc. The glasses are very useful materials because of their impressive properties. Few years back a new generation of glasses were developed i.e. bioactive glasses and bioactive glass ceramics. The glasses are used for bone grafting now-a-days because of their impressive bioactive properties. These glasses have tendency to form bonds with the living tissue organs. The future of these glasses will be bright in dental, orthopedics and prosthetic applications. In the present work borosilicate glasses of different compositions have been studied. The different elements were added with appropriate mol% to compose a new bioglass composition. The samples were prepared by melt quench route. The samples were immersed for 21 days in SBF. The samples were characterized before and after immersion in SBF by different techniques. The XRD technique was done to confirm the amorphous nature of glass before immersion and after immersion. The SEM and EDX were done to check the changes on the surface after immersion. The sample S1 has better biocompatibility results than S2 andS3. The formation of apatite on the glass samples were confirmed by all techniques mentioned above.
