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 Microscopy (SEM). Due to the Mg substitution, β-TCP phase was detected besides HAp, resulting in the formation of HAp/ β-TCP biphasic composites with different compositions. The substitutions of the ions have been verified by the decrease in the hexagonal unit cell volumes of the doped CaPs. FTIR spectra revealed the characteristic absorption bands of HAp, β-TCP and the ones that were resulted from the F-OH bonds and substitution of the Mg2+ ions. The SEM results revealed the grain sizes in the range of ~197 nm-740 nm. In general, the micro hardness and diametral tensile strength tests revealed that Mg2+ ions in large amounts (7.5 % mole) had negative effects on the mechanical properties of the samples, while substitution of the F- ions had a positive effect on their mechanical properties.

STRUCTURAL INVESTIGATION OF NANO HYDROXYAPATITES DOPED WITH Mg(2+) AND F(-) IONS
Sun, Z. P.; Evis, Zafer (2009-01-23)
Pure and Mg(2+) & F(-) doped nano hydroxyapatites (HA) were synthesized by a precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C to investigate their densification and structure. Different amounts of Mg(2+) and F ions were doped in to HAs. X-ray diffraction was used to identify the presence of phases And lattice parameters of HA and tri-calcium phosphates (TCP) present in the samples. Densification of HA was improved by the addition of these ions. In most of the doped samples, beta-tri-calcium phosphate (TC...

Structural and mechanical characteristics of hydroxyapatite and tri-calcium phosphates doped with Al3+ and F- ions
Tahmasebifar, A.; Evis, Zafer (2013-08-01)
In this study, doping of aluminum (Al3+) and/or fluoride (F-) ions into tri-calcium phosphate (TCP)-hydroxyapatite (HA) composites at various compositions were performed to investigate their microstructure and mechanical properties. Composites were synthesized by a precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 hr and 5 hrs. Densities of the sintered materials were increased by extending the sintering time and increasing the amount of Al3+ and F- doping. beta-TCP was observed as the main phase in...
Structural and electronic properties of rubreneperoxides
Erkoç, Şakir (2002-02-14)
The structural and electronic properties of rubrene and three rubreneperoxide isomers have been investigated by performing molecular mechanics and semi-empirical AMI molecular-orbital self-consistent field calculations. It has been found that isolated rubrene and rubreneperoxide isomers have non-planar structure, and are stable but endothermic.
