Silver and fluoride doped hydroxyapatites: Investigation by microstructure, mechanical and antibacterial properties

Turkoz, Mustafa
Atilla, Aykan Onur
Evis, Zafer
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 microstructures. In most of the samples, hydroxyapatite was the main phase with a minor amount of beta-TCP. Presence of fluoride and small amount of TCP was verified with all characteristic FTIR bands of hydroxyapatite for most of the samples. Compared to the pure hydroxyapatites, much higher microhardness values were measured in samples co-doped with Ag+ and F- ions. Antibacterial activity of the materials related to Escherichia coli was also observed in hydroxyapatite samples with high amount of Ag+ ions. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.

Synthesis and microstructural characterization of nano-size calcium phosphates with different stoichiometry
Ergun, Celaletdin; Evis, Zafer; Webster, Thomas J.; Sahin, Filiz Cinar (Elsevier BV, 2011-04-01)
Calcium phosphates with Ca/P molar ratios of 0.5, 0.75, 1.33, 1.5, 1.55, 1.67, 2.0, and 2.5 were synthesized by a wet chemistry precipitation method and sintered at 500 degrees C, 700 degrees C, 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C and 1300 degrees C for 2 h. Presence of phases and microstructures of calcium phosphates were determined by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. In all different Ca/P ratios, the precipitated phase was always hydroxyapatite with very small size and/or partial disorderness...
Sodium, ammonium, calcium, and magnesium forms of zeolite Y for the adsorption of glucose and fructose from aqueous solutions
Heper, Misket; Türker, Burhan Lemi; Kincal, N. Suzan (Elsevier BV, 2007-02-01)
The kinetics of adsorption by sodium, ammonium, calcium and magnesium forms of zeolite Y from aqueous solutions containing 25% w/v of either one or an equimolar mixture of glucose (G) and fructose (F) have been studied batch-wise at 50 degrees C. The adsorption of aqueous pure G was fast, while that of aqueous pure F depended on the cationic form, approaching that of G on the Mg-Y, and slowing down in the sequence of Mg2+ > NH4+ > Ca-2(+) > Na+ of the cations. The adsorption behavior from solutions containi...
Borophosphates: Hydrothermal and microwave-assisted synthesis of Na-5[B2P3O13]
Hauf, C; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Kizilyalli, M; Kniep, R (Elsevier BV, 1998-10-01)
Na-5[B2P3O13] was first prepared by high temperature synthesis (T-max = 780 degrees C) and was characterized by X-ray single crystal investigations recently. We have now succeeded in the hydrothermal synthesis of the compound and obtained single-phase products at 150 degrees C after 1-2 days. A microwave-assisted synthesis takes only 2 min to transform a solid mixture of berate and phosphate hydrates into the crystalline title compound. Pure Na-5[B2P3O13] melts at 747 degrees C and solidifies during cooling...
Effect of YF3 on the phase stability and sinterability of hydroxyapatite-Partially stabilized zirconia composites
Aykul, Anil; KUTBAY, IŞIL; Evis, Zafer; USTA, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
Pure hydroxyapatite (HA), HA and partially stabilized zirconia composites (PSZ) with YF3 and HA-PSZ composite containing 5 wt% PSZ without YF3 were sintered in air at 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C and 1300 degrees C for 1 h. The reactions and transformation of the phases in the composites were determined by X-ray diffraction. All the composites with or without YF3 showed desirable thermal stability below 1300 degrees C and besides various amounts of CaZrO3, any amount of tri-calcium phosphate (TCP) was not ...
Solid-state synthesis and X-ray diffraction studies of Na2S
Kizilyalli, M.; Bilgin, M.; Kizilyalli, H.M. (Elsevier BV, 1990-4)
Na2S was synthesized by a new solid-gas reaction of Na2CO3 with a sulfidizing gas mixture and a solid-solid reaction of carbon with Na2SO4. The reaction products were analyzed by X-ray powder diffraction and IR methods. Two new crystal modifications of Na2S were identified in addition to the previously reported antifluorite structure. They were designated as cubic Form II and orthorhombic Form III. The approximate unit cell dimensions were found to be a = 11.29 Å for the cubic form and a = 15.94, b = 16.00,...
