Boron-doped Biphasic Hydroxyapatite/beta-Tricalcium Phosphate for Bone Tissue Engineering

Boron-doped hydroxyapatite/tricalcium phosphates (BHTs) were synthesized to study boron uptake and correlate structural alterations of incremental boron addition (0 to 10 mol%). BHTs with a Ca/P ratio of 1.6 were prepared by a wet precipitation/microwave reflux method, sieved (< 70 mu m) and characterized. XRD and FTIR analyses revealed that boron slightly distorted apatite crystal, increased crystallinity (95.78 +/- 2.08% for 5BHT) and crystallite size (103.39 +/- 23.47 nm for 5BHT) and still, boron addition did not show any further detrimental effects. Total surface area (4.05 +/- 0.82 m(2)/g for 10BHT) and mesoporosity (23.90 +/- 7.92 mu L/g for 10BHT) were expanded as boron content was increased. Moreover, boron addition made grains become smaller (0.21 +/- 0.06 mu m for 5BHT) and ordered while hardness (10.51 +/- 0.86 GPa for 10BHT) increased. Boron incorporation enhanced bioactivity with significantly highest calcium phosphate deposition and protein adsorption (135.29 +/- 29.58 mu g on 10BHT). In return, boron favored highest alkaline phosphatase activity (4.80 +/- 0.40 M-ALP/ng(DNA).min), intracellular calcium (23.61 +/- 0.68 g/g(DNA)), phosphate (31.84 +/- 4.68 g/g(DNA)), and protein (23.70 +/- 3.46 g/g(DNA)) storage in 5BHT without cytotoxicity (128 +/- 18% viability compared to pure HT). Compared to literature, it can be pointed out that we successfully employed an optimal procedure for production of BHTs and incorporated significantly higher boron content in HT (5.23 mol%). Additionally, results tended to conclude that 5BHT samples (5 mol% boron in HT) demonstrated a very high potential to be used in composite bone tissue constructs.


Synthesis of beta-chloro-alpha-aminophosphonate derivatives via the regioselective ring opening of unactivated aziridine-2-phosphonates
Polat-Cakir, Sidika; BEKSULTANOVA, Nurzhan; Doğan, Özdemir (Informa UK Limited, 2018-12-02)
A series of unactivated racemic and chiral aziridine-2-phosphonates were synthesized by modified Gabriel-Cromwell reaction. Ring opening reaction of the synthesized phosphonates by gaseous HCl provided access to a wide range of biologically interesting novel beta-chloro-alpha-aminophosphonates. All reactions toward each of the above-mentioned products can be conducted regioselectively in high yields.

Tanyeli, Cihangir (Elsevier BV, 2000-10-07)
We describe the unusual preliminary results of manganese(III) acetate based tandem oxidation of various β-alkoxy 2-cyclopentenone and 2-cyclohexenone derivatives to afford corresponding α′-acetoxy-α′-phenyl substituted oxidation products in good yields.
Friedel-Crafts alkylation of ferrocene with Z-cyclooctene and cyclohexene
Grevels, Friedrich-Wilhelm; KURAN, Ayla; Özkar, Saim; Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 1999-09-15)
Cycloalkylated ferrocene derivatives, potentially useful as liquid burning rate modifiers for the HTPB/AP-based composite rocket propellants, were synthesized by the Friedel-Crafts alkylation of ferrocene with Z-cyclooctene or cyclohexene in the presence of AlCl3 as a Lewis acid catalyst. The reaction with Z-cyclooctene yields a mixture of main products containing up to four C8H15 substituents, each of which exists in several isomeric forms, as recognized by MS and GC-MS techniques. Two isomeric monosubstit...
Antioxidant enzyme activities in rat liver tissues of diabetic rats
Sadi, Gökhan; Güray, Tülin; Department of Biochemistry (2004)
Free radicals are the compounds having one or more unpaired electrons in their outer orbital and this unpaired electron make these compounds very reactive. Especially as their concentration increases, they initiate a chain oxidation reaction of lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. The condition, in which the production of free radicals exceeds their elimination or tissue defense mechanism decrease against them or both occur together, is called oxidative stress. In diabetes mellitus which is a glucose metabol...
Cyclacenes having mono boron or nitrogen atom in the backbone - a theoretical study
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Gumus, S (Elsevier BV, 2004-04-09)
Semi-empirical molecular orbital treatment at the level of AMI unrestricted Hartree-Fock type calculations was performed on the Huckel type boron and nitrogen substituted cyclacenes. Substitution is done either in a peri position or a fusion points. Boron substitution is found to be destabilizing. whereas nitrogen substitution has stabilizing effect on parent cyclacenes.
