Effect of YF3 on hot-pressed hydroxyapatite and monoclinic zirconia composites

2007-09-15
Monoclinic zirconia and hydroxyapatite (HA) composites with or without 5 wt% YF3 were synthesized to investigate their mechanical properties and phase stability. HA decomposed to tri-calcium-phosphate and CaZrO3 in the 25 wt% ZrO2-75 wt% HA composite. However, thermal stability of the phases, densification, hardness and fracture toughness were improved when 5 wt% YF3 was added into the system. Five weight percent YF3 increased the transformation of monoclinic-ZrO2 into tetragonal/cubic-ZrO2 by incorporating the Y3+ ions present in YF3 when the hot pressing temperature was increased from 1100 to 1200 degrees C. Moreover, the stability of HA was also improved by incorporating the F- ions from YF3 in the place of OH- ions in HA. Substitution of OH- by F- ions was verified by the change in HA's hexagonal lattice parameters. A fracture toughness of 1.93 MPa root m was calculated for the same composite.

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...
Effect of isomorphic atom substitution on the lattice parameters and the optical absorption edge of TIGaSe2-TllnSe2 mixed crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (2006-05-01)
The variation of lattice parameters of TlGaSe2-TlInSe 2 mixed crystals with composition have been investigated by using of X-ray diffraction technique. For the mixed crystals studied, a structural phase transition (monoclinic to tetragonal) due to atom substitution is observed when the sum of the tetrahedral covalent radii of the Ga(In) and the Se atoms in Ga(In)Se4 tetrahedra reaches a critical value of about 0.254 nm. From transmission and reflection measurements, the compositional dependence of the indir...
Effect of surface treatment on electrical conductivity of carbon black filled conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...

A comparative investigation was undertaken for the electrosynthesis and electrochemical properties of three different electroactive polymers having a conjugated core building block, dibenzo[a,c]phenazine. A series of monomers has been synthesized as regards to thiophene based units; thiophene, 3-hexyl thiophene, and 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene. The effects of different donor substituents on the polymers' electrochemical properties were examined by cyclic voltammetry. Introducing highly electron-donating (eth...
