Investigation of bismuth doped bioglass/graphene oxide nanocomposites for bone tissue engineering

In this study, bismuth doped 45S5 nanobioactive bioglass (nBG) and graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposites were developed and characterized in terms of microstructural, mechanical, bioactivity and biological properties. Bismuth (Bi) - doped nBG was synthesized by sol-gel method and sintered at 600 degrees C for 2 h. Nanosized GO was homogeneously mixed with Bi doped bioglass at various ratios to prepare nanocomposites. Addition of Bi increased the density of nBG samples while a considerable decrease in density was observed for nanocomposites with GO incorporation. Bi improved the diametral tensile strength of nBG and addition of 2.5% GO to the composite also increased the diametral tensile strength of the nanocomposites. However, addition of more than 2.5% GO had negative effect on the diametral tensile strength of the composites. Bi doping to bioglass and its composite with GO increased the biocompatibility of 45S5 nBG in which 96.5BG1Bi2.5GO (containing 96.5% BG 1% Bi 2.5% GO in weight ratio) showed highest cell viability. Overall, it can be concluded that composites of Bi doped 45S5 nBG with GO hold promise as biomaterial for biomedical applications.

Uregen, Nurhan; Pehlivanoglu, Kubra; Ozdemir, Yagmur; DEVRİM, YILSER (2017-01-26)
In this study, phosphoric acid doped Polybenzimidazole/Graphene Oxide (PBI/GO) nano composite membranes were prepared by dispersion of various amounts of GO in PBI polymer matrix followed by phosphoric acid doping for high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell (HT-PEMFC) application. The structure of the PBI/GO composite membranes was investigated by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The introduction of GO into the FBI polymer matri...
Development of porous chitosan-gelatin/hydroxyapatite composite scaffolds for hard tissue-engineering applications
Isikli, C.; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2012-02-01)
Composite scaffolds prepared from natural polymers and hydroxyapatite (HA) are expected to have enhanced osteoconductive properties and as a result gained much attention in recent years for use in bone tissue-engineering applications. Although there are various natural polymers available for this purpose, chitosan (C) and gelatin (G) are commonly studied because of their inherent properties. The aim of this study was to prepare three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds using these two natural polymers and to add eit...
A Study on development of machinable calcium phosphate based bio-composites with zirconia, boron oxide and lanthanum oxide
Khoshsima, Sina; Evis, Zafer; Özgül, Metin; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2015)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure, mechanical and biological properties of pure hydroxyapatite and composites of hydroxyapatite with zirconia, boron oxide and lanthanum oxide. Hydroxyapatite was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100°C for 1 h. It was observed that relative density of the sintered composites including zirconia was increased while the density of composites including boron oxide decreased. For physical and structural analysis, X-ray diffraction, sc...

Buber, Ece; SÖYLEMEZ, SANİYE; UDUM, YASEMİN; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2018-07-01)
Since conjugated polymers are an important class of materials with remarkable properties in biosensor applications, in this study, a novel glucose biosensor based on a conjugated polymer was fabricated via the electropolymerization of the monomer 10,13-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)dipyridol[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine onto a graphite electrode surface. Glucose oxidase (GOx) was used as the model biological recognition element. As a result of the enzymatic reaction between GOx and glucose, the glucose amount was det...
Preparation and characterization of sulfonated polysulfone/titanium dioxide composite membranes for proton exchange membrane fuel cells
Devrim, Yiser; Erkan, Serdar; BAÇ, NURCAN; Eroğlu, İnci (2009-05-01)
In the present study, sulfonated polysulfone (sPS)/titanium dioxide (TiO2) composite membranes for use in proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) were investigated. Polysulfone (PS) was sulfonated with trimethylsilyl chlorosulfonate in 1,2 dichloroethane at ambient temperatures. It was shown that the degree of sulfonation is increased with the molar ratio of the sulfonating agent to PS repeat unit. The degree of sulfonation was determined by elemental analysis and H-1 NMR was performed to verify the su...
