Sun, Z. P.
This study aimed to investigate the diametral strength testing of hydroxyapatite (HA) doped with Y and fluoride with different compositions. Hydroxyapatites were synthesised by precipitation method and sintered at 900, 1100 and 1300 degrees C for 1 h. High amounts of doping caused a decrease in relative densities of HAs. Higher sintering temperatures helped in increasing the relative densities. No second phases were observed by X-ray diffraction spectra of 2.5 mol.-%Y and 2.5 mol.-%F doped HA after the sintering at all temperatures. Trace amounts of beta-tricalcium phosphate was found in 7.5 mol.-%Y and 2.5 mol.-%F doped HA sintered at 1100 and 1300 degrees C. Diametral strength of doped HAs mostly enhanced with the addition of Y3+ and F- . 2.5YFHA sintered at 1300 degrees C had the highest diametral strength of 11.6 MPa with a relative density of 94.3% of theoretical density.

Microstructure, microhardness, and biocompatibility characteristics of yttrium hydroxyapatite doped with fluoride
Toker, S. M.; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Evis, Zafer (Wiley, 2011-02-01)
The current study focused on doping of hydroxyapatite (HA) with constant yttrium (Y3+) and varying fluoride (F-) compositions to investigate its microstructure, microhardness, and biocompatibility. HA was synthesized by precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 h. Y3+ and F- ion dopings resulted in changes in densities. In x-ray diffraction analysis, no secondary phase formation was observed. Lattice parameters decreased upon ion substitutions. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results show...
Nano calcium phosphates doped with titanium and fluoride ions: sinterability and stability of phases
Güngör Geridönmez, Serap; Evis, Zafer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2012)
The purpose of this study was to synthesize calcium phosphates doped with titanium and fluoride ions in different combinations. Pure and doped calcium phosphates were synthesized by a precipitation method. The synthesized materials were sintered at 1100ºC and 1300ºC for 1h. The ceramics were characterized by density measurements to determine the effect of sintering temperature. Presence of phases and bonds were characterized by XRD diffraction and FTIR spectroscopy. Grain sizes of the samples were obtained ...
Microstructural, biological and mechanical investigations of hydroxyapatite-β-tricalcium phosphate composites doped with strontium and fluoride
Pourreza, Elmira; Evis, Zafer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2016)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure, mechanical and biological properties of biphasic hydroxyapatite--Tricalcium phosphate (HT) and HT substituted with constant fluoride (F−) and varying strontium (Sr2+) amounts. All the samples were synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100°C for 1 h. It was observed that the relative density of the sintered strontium and fluoride doped HT slightly increased. For microstructural analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron m...
Time weighted average concentration monitoring of compounds with wide range of physicochemical properties in aquatic environment using thin film solid phase microextraction
Boyacı, Ezel; Ahmadi, Fardin; Pawliszyn, Janusz (null; 2017-03-05)
This study offers an integrated approach for time weighted average (TWA) concentration determination of analytes with a wide range of physical-chemical properties. Two types of thin film solid phase microextraction (TF-SPME) passive sampler, namely a retracted TF-SPME device using a hydrophilic lipophilic balance (HLB) sorbent and an open bed configuration TF-SPME device with octadecyl silica-based (C18) sorbent were developed and used for monitoring TWA concentrations of selected UV blockers and biocides. ...
Comparison of undrained shear strength by pressuremeter and other tests, and numerical assessment of the effect of finite probe length in pressuremeter tests
IŞIK, Nihat Sinan; ULUSAY, REŞAT; Doyuran, Vedat (2015-08-01)
There is a wide body of research reported in the literature which compare the undrained shear strength determined from various field and laboratory tests. The pressuremeter testing equipment and the related design techniques have been continuously refined. However, the undrained shear strength (S (u)) determined from the pressuremeter test (PMT) is generally higher than that obtained from other field or laboratory tests. In this study, numerical methods to consider the effects of length to diameter ratio (L...
