Improvements in microstructural, mechanical, and biocompatibility properties of nano-sized hydroxyapatites doped with yttrium and fluoride

Hydroxyapatite was doped with Y3+ (2.5, 5 and 7.5 mol%) and F (2.5 mol%) ions (2.5YFHA, 5YFHA, 7.5YFHA, respectively) to compare its structural and mechanical properties and cellular response with pure-hydroxyapatite. No second phases were observed by X-ray diffraction spectra of 2.5YFHA. Doped hydroxyapatites had F- bonds in addition to OH- bonds. Hydroxyapatites sintered at 900 and 1100 degrees C were in nano-size. 7.5YFHA sintered at 1300 degrees C had the highest microhardness value. 2.5YFHA sintered at 1100 degrees C had the highest fracture toughness value. MTT viability assays showed high cell attachments on 2.5YFHA. Cell proliferation on 2.5YFHA and 5YFHA sintered at 1100 and 1300 degrees C was comparable with the control after 5-day culture. The highest ALP production and calcium deposition were observed on all hydroxyapatites sintered at 1100 degrees C. 2.5YFHA sintered at 1100 degrees C can be an alternative for hydroxyapatite in orthopedic applications.

Silver and fluoride doped hydroxyapatites: Investigation by microstructure, mechanical and antibacterial properties
Turkoz, Mustafa; Atilla, Aykan Onur; Evis, Zafer (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
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...
An integrated process for partial oxidation of alkanes
Zhou, XP; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yilmaz, GA; Lorkovic, YM; Laverman, LE; Weiss, M; Sherman, JH; McFarland, EW; Stucky, GD; Ford, PC (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2003-09-21)
The partial oxidation of alkanes via bromination followed by the reaction with solid metal oxide mixtures (MO) is shown to give an array of products that can be tuned by varying the MO and the reaction conditions.
Synthesis and characterization of conducting graft copolymers based on oligophenols
Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Arikan, Ufuk; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yuruk, Huseyin; Mart, Hasan (Informa UK Limited, 2006-10-01)
Oligo-2-aminophenol (OAF) was synthesized with oxidative polycondensation of 2-aminophenol and hydrogen peroxide in an aqueous alkaline medium at 80 degrees C. Oligo-2-aminophenol with thiophene side groups (TOAF) was obtained by the reaction of OAF and thiophene-3-acetic acid. Graft copolymers of TOAF and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization in p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA)/water medium. Characterization of the graft copolymer (TOAF-g-Py), was carried out by combination of techniques...
Thermoluminescence properties of Al doped ZnO nanoparticles
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-15)
ZnO nanoparticles doped with aluminum (AZO nanoparticles) were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) and structural characterization experiments. TL experiments were performed on AZO nanoparticles in the temperature range of 10-300 K. TL curve presented one intensive peak around 123 K and two overlapped peaks to intensive peak around 85 and 150 K for heating rate of 0.1 K/s. Curve fitting and initial rise methods were used to find the activation energies of associated trapping centers. ...
Electrochemical polymerization of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid and its electrochromic device application
Bezgin, Buket; CİHANER, ATİLLA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
Poly(9-fluorenecarboxylic acid) (PFCA) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid (FCA) using a mixture of nitromethane and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate as the solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte. An insoluble and conducting brownish-orange film was deposited on the electrode surface, both during repetitive cycling and constant potential electrolysis at 1.15 V. Characterization of the polymer film has been carried out using Four...
