The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of Zn doped CaP coatings prepared by micro-arc oxidation method, as a possible approach to control MgCa1 alloy degradation. All the prepared coatings comprised a calcium deficient CaP phase. The control in this evaluation was performed with undoped CaP coating in SBF solution at body temperature (37 ± 0.5⁰C). The investigation involved determination of microchemical, mechanical, morphological, properties along with anticorrosive, cytocompatibility and antibacterial efficacy. The effect of sterilization process on the properties of the surfaces was also investigated. The results showed that the addition of Zn into CaP increased the corrosion resistance of MgCa1 alloy. Moreover, the adhesion strength of the coatings to MgCa1 alloy was enhanced by Zn addition. In cytotoxicity testing of the samples, extracts of the samples in MEM were incubated with L929 cells and malformation, degeneration and lysis of the cells were examined microscopically after 72 h. The results showed that all samples were cytocompatible. The degradation of MgCa1 alloy in the simulated body fluids (SBF) or DMEM was decreased by coating with CaP. Moreover, the degradation rate of CaP was further decreased by adding a small amount of Zn into the CaP matrix. The samples having CaP coatings and Zn doped CaP coating demonstrated antibacterial efficacy against E.coli. As a result, coating of magnesium alloy with Zn-doped CaP decreased the degradation rate, increased the corrosion resistance, cytocompatibility and the antibacterial effects of the alloys.

Unsoy, Gözde; Yalçın Azarkan, Serap; Khodadust, R; Parsiyan, M; Mutlu, P; Bayanbold, H; Gündüz, Ufuk (2014-04-01)
In this study, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by co-precipitation method. The synthesized nanoparticles were modified with aminopropyl-trimethoxysilane for dendrimer coating. Aminosilane-modified MNPs were coated with PAMAM dendrimer. Gene silencing effect of Survivin siRNA loaded nanoparticles (NPs) were studied on Doxorubicin resistant MCF-7 cell lines. Consequently, Survivin siRNA were triggered cell death when delivered by G4 PAMAM dendrimer coated magnetic nanoparticles. Su...
Conducting FTO coatings produced using ultrasonic spray pyrolysis for heating applications
Süer, Başar; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2018)
In this thesis, fluorine doped tin dioxide (FTO) coatings were deposited on AISI 304 stainless steel (SS) substrates using ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) technique. Four different candidate insulating intermediate layers of TiO2, MgO, Al2O3 and SiO2 were selected and coated on AISI 304 using USP and investigated in order to overcome dielectric breakdown of FTO layer due to conductive nature of stainless steel substrate under the applied voltage. After the optimization of the process parameters for the dep...

Sun, Zehra Pınar; Evis, Zafer; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2009)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure and Mg2+ and F- doped nano-calcium phosphate (CaP) powders, which were synthesized by precipitation method. After the drying and calcination processes, the samples were sintered at 1100ºC for 1 hour. High densities were achieved except for the 7.5 % mole Mg doped samples. Microstructure of the CaPs were investigated by X- ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Scanning Electron Mi...
Carbon-supported PT nanoparticles prepared by new surfactants and different reducing agents for methanol oxidation reaction
Kalyoncu, Sevda; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün; Department of Chemistry (2015)
In this thesis, carbon supported platinum catalysts were synthesized to investigate the effect of reducing agent and surfactant on the performance of catalyst towards methanol oxidation reaction. For this purpose, the catalysts were prepared by using PtCl4 as a starting material, propylamine (a) and dipropylamine (b) as surfactant, and sodium borohydride (catalyst I) and formaldehyde (catalyst II) as reducing agent. The prepared catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron ...

Kayhan, Said Murat; Evis, Zafer; Koç, Muammer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2015)
In this study, the microstructural and mechanical properties of the Mg-based implant samples prepared via powder metallurgy route were investigated. Moreover, the biological response of the Mg-based implant samples was investigated. AZ91D Mg alloy discs with smooth and textured surfaces were manufactured under compaction pressures of 25 and 40 MPa at 150⁰C. They were then sintered at 380⁰C for 30 and 150 mins. The microstructural evaluation was conducted through SEM and light microcopy images. As compaction...
