Hydroxyapatite (HA) co-doped with Zn2+ and F ions was synthesized by precipitation method for the first time in this study. FTIR spectroscopy revealed Zn2+ and F ions incorporation into HA structure. Co-doping of Zn2+ and F ions decreased unit cell volume of HA and decreased grain sizes. Zn2+ or 5 mol% F- addition into HA significantly Unproved its density. Microhardness was increased with Zn2+ addition and further increase was detected with F- co-doping. Zn2+ and F- co-doped samples had higher fracture toughness than pure HA. Zn2+ incorporation to the structure resulted in an increase in cell proliferation and ALP activity of cells, and further increase was observed with 1 mol% F- addition. With superior mechanical properties and biological response 2Zn1F is a good candidate for biomedical applications. (C) 2014 Chinese Materials Research Society. Production and hosting by Elsevier B.V.

In this study, optimization of boron emitter for n-type crystalline Si solar cells has been studied in detail. Industrial open-tube (atmospheric) furnace with BBr3 as liquid B source was utilized which is a preferred dopant for the diffusion process of n-type wafers in industry [1] [2]. During the processes, full boat (270 wafers) n-type square samples were used to investigate the uniformity from gas zone to door zone and inside the wafer. To achieve uniform boron emitters on large n-type substrates, parame...
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...

Oren, EE; Taspinar, E; Tas, AC (1997-10-01)
Antiferroelectric PbZrO3 has been synthesized by homogeneous precipitation from aqueous solutions in the presence of urea (NH2CONH2) and calcination for 6 h at 700 degrees C. SEM studies displayed the presence of submicrometer powder, with a significant degree of agglomeration.
Structural and mechanical characteristics of nanohydroxyapatite doped with zinc and chloride
Uysal, I.; Severcan, F.; Evis, Zafer (2013-04-01)
In this study, hydroxylapatite (HA) doped with Zn2+ and/or Cl- ions was synthesised by precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 h. Densities of the samples were measured by the Archimedes method. Zn2+ addition increased the density significantly, while Cl- increased the density insignificantly. Hydroxylapatite phase and inconsiderable amount of CaO phase were detected in some samples according to the X-ray diffraction results. Cl- added samples (2.5 mol.-%) increased the hexagonal unit cell...
Extraction of some transition metals with N,N-dibutyl-N '-benzoylthiourea into molten paraffin at 65 degrees C
Merdivan, M; Gungor, A; Savasci, S; Aygün, Rüveyde Sezer (2000-10-02)
The solid-liquid extraction behaviour of some transition metals (Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II)) by the use of N,N-dibutyl-N'-benzoylthiourea as an extractant in paraffin (58-60 degrees C) has been investigated at 65.0 +/- 0.5 degrees C. The effect of equilibration time, pH of the aqueous phase, concentration of extractant and solid solvent used on the extraction efficiency of these metals have been discussed. The interferences of various ions are examined. The method has been applied to the dete...
