The synthesis of zinc, chloride and fluoride doped nano hydroxylapatites by precipitation method and investigation of their mechanical, structural and biological properties

Uysal, İdil
This study aimed synthesizing hydroxylapatite (HA) and Zn2+, F- and Cl- doped HA by solution precipitation method. The synthesized compounds were sintered at 1100°C for 1h. For structural characterization, density of the samples were measured by Archimedes’ method. It was observed that Zn2+ addition increased the density significantly whereas F- caused a decrease and Cl- increased the density with a little amount. XRD was applied to the samples and it was found that co-doping of Zn2+ and F- ions decreased the unit cell volume of HA with F- addition. Other compositions gave fluctuated results in terms of unit cell volumes. HA phase and a little amount of CaO phase were detected in some samples. FTIR spectroscopy was used to detect whether Zn2+, F- and Cl- ions were incorporated to the HA structure or not by observing the bands corresponding to the bonds in the molecules. The amount of addition was also detected by FTIR. Results showed that ion incorporation to the HA structure was done successfully. SEM images were v analyzed and grain sizes of samples were calculated by Rietvelt analysis. Grain sizes of the samples increased by Cl- addition and decreased by Zn2+ and/or F- addition. For mechanical characterization, Vickers microhardness test was applied. Fracture toughness was calculated from Vickers microhardness results. According to the results, the highest microhardness values were found for F- and Zn2+ co-doped samples. It was also shown that fracture toughness decreased by Zn2+ addition. However, Zn2+ and F- co-doped samples gave higher fracture toughness results when compared with pure HA. Cl- addition also decreased the fracture toughness. The best compositions in terms of structural and mechanical properties was chosen as Zn2+ and F- co-doped samples and biological characterization was applied to these samples. Saos-2 cell line was used in biological examinations. For biological characterizations, Alamar Blue™ assay to detect viability and alkaline phosphatase activity (ALP) assay to detect differentiation were done. It was observed that 2 mol.% Zn2+ addition increased the cell viability and alkaline phosphatase activity. 1 mol.% F- addition also improved cell viability and alkaline phosphatase activiy. SEM images were analyzed to observe the morphology of the cells on HA and selected doped HA discs. In accordance with Alamar Blue™ assay and alkaline phosphatase activity assay, cells showed dendritic shapes on 2 Zn and 2 Zn 1 F sample which was the indicator of good material-cell interaction. Dissolution test was also applied by immersing the samples in simulated body fluid (SBF). pH change and SEM images for Ca2+ deposition were investigated. Increase in pH change with time was observed. F- included samples gave the lowest pH change results, especially 2 Zn 1 F. Dissolution pits and some apatitic formations were observed in SEM images.


A theoretical study of the cycloaddition between cyclopentadiene and allylideneammonium cation: An AM1 study
Zora, Metin (2002-12-09)
The Diels-Alder reaction between cyclopentadiene and allylideneammonium cation has been studied by means of AMI semiempirical method. Allylideneammonium cation can add to cyclopentadiene via its either C=C or C=N bond. For each cycloaddition, four reactive channels have been characterized corresponding to the endo-s-trans, endo-s-cis, exo-s-trans and exo-s-cis approach modes. The results indicate that C=C bond of allylideneammonium cation is more reactive as dienophile than its C=N bond in reaction with cyc...
Development of Non-Invasive and Biocompatible Thin Film Micro-Extraction Contact Lens Type Devices Compatible for In Vivo Metabolomics Investigations from Eye Surface
Nalbant, Atakan Arda; Boyacı, Ezel (2019-09-01)
Solid phase microextraction (SPME), is a sampling and samp- le preparation technique in which the extraction of analytes is based on an equilibrium established between a sample and ext- ractive phase coated on a tip of a fiber. Thin film microextraction (TFME) which is a type of SPME provides high analytical sen- sitivity in environmental and biological samples and has gained interest in areas where no other technique can provide solutions. In this study, the aim was to develop biocompatible and flexib-...
The preparation and characterization of nano-sized Pt-Pd/C catalysts and comparison of their superior catalytic activities for methanol and ethanol oxidation
Ozturk, Zafer; Sen, Fatih; Sen, Selda; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün (2012-12-01)
In this study, two groups of carbon supported PtPd samples with different percentages of metals were prepared to examine the effects of Pd and stabilizing agents on the catalytic activity towards methanol and ethanol oxidation reactions. As a stabilizing agent, 1-hexanethiol and 1,1-dimethyl hexanethiol were used for group "a" and "b" catalysts, respectively. Cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ra...
Characterization of thermoluminescence kinetic parameters of beta irradiated B doped Ca-5(PO4)(3)OH powder obtained from eggshell
Depci, T.; Oglakci, M.; Sezer, Selda; YÜCEL, AYTAÇ; DOĞAN, TAMER; Souadi, G.; TOPAKSU, MUSTAFA; Can, N. (2021-07-01)
In this study, we have synthesized B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) by a sonication chemical method. The thermoluminescence (TL) properties of the family of synthesized samples (B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) were investigated using an IRSL-TL 565 nm filter. This gave the highest TL intensity of each phosphor after 2 Gy beta-irradiation. Three TL glow peaks of B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) are centered at around 84, 208 and 324 degrees C (with a heating rate of 2 degrees Cs-1). The trapping parameters such as activation en...
Fabrication and characterization of porous hydroxyapatite and biphasic calcium phosphate ceramic as bone substitutes
Koc, N; Timucin, M; Korkusuz, Feza (2004-01-01)
In the present study, the calcium phosphate powders (HAP, HAP-TCP) were produced by a precipitation technique involving the use of aqueous solutions of calcium nitrate and diammonium hydrogen phosphate. Preforms of calcium phosphate ceramics were produced by using a modified slip casting technique. Porosity in the cast and in the sintered ceramic was obtained through custom made PMMA beads similar to200-300 mum size. The green ceramic samples were prepared by suspending the apatite powder and PMMA beads in ...
