Combustion synthesis of calcium phosphate bioceramic powders

Tas, AC
Calcium phosphate (hydroxyapatite and tri-calcium phosphate) bioceramics closely resembling, in chemical composition, those found in vivo in human bones have been synthesized by using novel synthetic body fluid solutions via the self-propagating combustion synthesis (SPCS) method. Powder characterization was performed by XRD: ICP-AES, FTIR and SEM.


Highly Efficient Room Temperature Synthesis of Silver-Doped Zinc Oxide (ZnO:Ag) Nanoparticles: Structural, Optical, and Photocatalytic Properties
Yildirim, Ozlem Altintas; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Durucan, Caner (Wiley, 2013-03-01)
Synthesis of silver-doped zinc oxide (ZnO:Ag) nanoparticles through precipitation method has been reported. The synthesis was conducted at room temperature and no subsequent thermal treatment was applied. ZnO nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), fourier transmission infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and ultraviolet-visible (UVVis) spectroscopy. Detailed crystallographic investigation was accomplished through ...
Reactive extrusion of poly(ethylene terephthalate)-(ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Alyamac, Elif; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate), organoclay, and an ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer acting as an impact modifier for PET. In this context, first, the optimum amount of the impact modifier was determined by melt compounding binary PET-terpolymer blends in a corotating twin-screw extruder. The amount...
Kinetic model for alpha-tricalcium phosphate hydrolysis
Durucan, Caner (Wiley, 2002-08-01)
A mechanistic model for the kinetics of hydrolysis of alpha-tricalcium phosphate (alpha-Ca-3(PO4)(2) or alpha-TCP) to hydroxyapatite (Ca10-x(HPO4)(x)(PO4)(6-x)(OH)(2-x) or HAp) has been developed. The model is based on experimental hydrolysis rate data obtained using isothermal calorimetry. Analysis of the kinetic data according to the general kinetics models in terms of the fractional degree of reaction and time suggests the hydrolysis to be controlled by different rate-limiting mechanisms as reaction proc...
Low-temperature chemical synthesis of lanthanum monoaluminate
Taspinar, E; Tas, AC (Wiley, 1997-01-01)
One of the promising candidates for ferroelectric substrate materials, lanthanum monoaluminate (LaAlO3), was successfully synthesized by two separate chemical powder preparation techniques: (i) homogeneous precipitation from aqueous solutions containing urea (CH4N2O) in the presence of nitrate salts, and (ii) self-propagating combustion synthesis from aqueous solutions containing CH4N2O and the respective nitrate salts of lanthanum and aluminum. The submicrometer, spherical-like particles of the precursors ...
Synthesis, characterization, and electrochromic properties of conducting copolymers of 2-[(3-thienylcarbonyl)oxy]ethyl 3-thiophene carboxylate with thiophene and pyrrole
Bulut, U; Alkan, S; Yilmaz, F; Yagci, Y; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2004-07-01)
2-[(3-Thienylcarbonyl)oxy]ethyl 3-thiophene carboxylate (TOET) was synthesized via the reaction of 3-thionylcarboxylic acid with ethylene glycol, and electrochemically polymerized with thiophene (Th) and pyrrole (Py) by using tetrabutylannnonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) as the supporting electrolyte in acetonitrile (ACN). Characterization of the resulting copolymers were performed via cyclic voltammetry, FTIR, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrical conductivities are measured by the four-probe ...
