Pure hydroxyapatite (HA), HA and partially stabilized zirconia composites (PSZ) with YF3 and HA-PSZ composite containing 5 wt% PSZ without YF3 were sintered in air at 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C and 1300 degrees C for 1 h. The reactions and transformation of the phases in the composites were determined by X-ray diffraction. All the composites with or without YF3 showed desirable thermal stability below 1300 degrees C and besides various amounts of CaZrO3, any amount of tri-calcium phosphate (TCP) was not observed. Above 1100 degrees C, composites with YF3 showed higher thermal stability than the composites without YF3. On the other hand, pure HA started to decompose and TCP was observed at 1300 degrees C. Composites with YF3 showed improved thermal stability than the composite containing 5 wt% PSZ without YF3 and pure HA at lower sintering temperatures such as 900 degrees C and 1100 degrees C. However, it was observed that the increasing amount of YF3 addition caused negative effect on the thermal stability of the composites. 5ZHA composites with YF3 showed the highest relative density among all of the composites with or without YF3.

Synthesis and microstructural characterization of nano-size calcium phosphates with different stoichiometry
Ergun, Celaletdin; Evis, Zafer; Webster, Thomas J.; Sahin, Filiz Cinar (Elsevier BV, 2011-04-01)
Calcium phosphates with Ca/P molar ratios of 0.5, 0.75, 1.33, 1.5, 1.55, 1.67, 2.0, and 2.5 were synthesized by a wet chemistry precipitation method and sintered at 500 degrees C, 700 degrees C, 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C and 1300 degrees C for 2 h. Presence of phases and microstructures of calcium phosphates were determined by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. In all different Ca/P ratios, the precipitated phase was always hydroxyapatite with very small size and/or partial disorderness...
Silver and fluoride doped hydroxyapatites: Investigation by microstructure, mechanical and antibacterial properties
Turkoz, Mustafa; Atilla, Aykan Onur; Evis, Zafer (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
Hydroxyapatite co-doped with Ag+ and F- ions was synthesized by the precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 h. Samples were characterized by density, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy to investigate their microstructure, phase formation and bonding characteristics. Moreover, samples were also characterized by microhardness and antibacterial tests. Small amount of dopings resulted in high densities and fine grain...
Effect of calcium carbonate addition on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
ÇAMURLU, HASAN ERDEM; SEVİNÇ, NACİ; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-01)
Effect of CaCO3 on formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) was investigated by holding CaCO3 free and CaCO3 added activated carbon-boric oxide mixtures under nitrogen atmosphere at 1500 degrees C for 30-120 min. Amount of CaCO3 addition was varied in the range of 0-50 wt.% of the initial mixture. Products were characterized by powder X-ray diffractometry, FT-IR analysis, quantitative chemical analysis, scanning electron microscopy and BET specific surface area analysis. It was observed that calcium carb...
Production and properties of tooth-colored yttria stabilized zirconia ceramics for dental applications
Kaplan, Melis; PARK, JONGEE; Kim, Soo Young; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-01)
Dense zirconia stabilized with 3 mol% yttria ceramics were produced in disc shape by first cold isostatically pressing at 100 MPa and then sintering at 1450 degrees C at ambient laboratory conditions. Coloring was accomplished by immersion the discs in NiCl2, MoCl3, and NiCl2 + MoCl3 solutions for 5, 30, and 60 s. Different concentrations (0.1, 0.25, and 0.5 wt%) were applied to get the color of natural tooth. The density, color, microhardness, fracture toughness, compressive strength, and wear rate of the ...
Effect of AlF3, CaF2 and MgF2 on hot-pressed hydroxyapatite-nanophase alpha-alumina composites
Evis, Zafer (2008-10-02)
Nanophase alpha-alumina and hydroxyapatite composites (with and without 5 wt% AlF3, CaF2 or MgF2 added separately) were hot pressed at 1100 degrees C and 1200 degrees C to investigate their mechanical properties and phase stability. Hydroxyapatite slightly decomposed to tri-calciurn-phosphate when there was no F- present. With the addition of AlF3, CaF2 or MgF2 into the composite, it improved its thermal stability and mechanical properties. Substitution of OH- by F- ions in hydroxyapatite was verified by th...
