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 ...
Activity-corn position relations in MuCr(2)O(4)-CoCr2O4 solid solutions and stabilities of MnCr2O4 and CoCr2O4 at 1300 degrees C
Koc, N; Timucin, M (Wiley, 2005-09-01)
Phase equilibria in the system MnO-CoO-Cr2O3 were investigated at 1300 degrees C under controlled oxygen partial pressures by using the gas equilibration technique. The CoO activities in various phase assemblages of the system were measured by determining the partial pressures of oxygen in the gas phase for coexistence with metallic cobalt. The activity data revealed that at 1300 degrees C, MnO-CoO and MnCr2O4-CoCr2O4 solid solutions exhibit mild positive departures from ideal behavior. The activities in th...
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...
Material and Elastic Properties of Al-Tobermorite in Ancient Roman Seawater Concrete
Jackson, Marie D; Moon, Juhyuk; Gotti, Emanuele; Taylor, Rae; Chae, Sejung R; Kunz, Martin; Emwas, Abdul-Hamid; Akgül, Çağla; Guttmann, Peter; Levitz, Pierre; Wenk, Hans-Rudolf; Monteiro, Paulo J (Wiley, 2013-08-01)
The material characteristics and elastic properties of aluminum-substituted 11 angstrom tobermorite in the relict lime clasts of 2000-year-old Roman seawater harbor concrete are described with TG-DSC and Si-29 MAS NMR studies, along with nanoscale tomography, X-ray microdiffraction, and high-pressure X-ray diffraction synchrotron radiation applications. The crystals have aluminum substitution for silicon in tetrahedral bridging and branching sites and 11.49(3)angstrom interlayer (002) spacing. With prolonge...
Carbothermic formation of boron nitride
Aydogdu, A; Sevinc, N (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
Formation of boron nitride by reaction of boric oxide with carbon and nitrogen was studied. It was found from the results of experiments conducted by holding BA-activated C mixtures under a flowing nitrogen atmosphere that formation of boron nitride was complete in 120 min at 1500 degreesC. After cleaning the reaction product from the ash of the activated carbon and from the unreacted B2O3 pure BN powder was obtained. B4C was found to exist as an intermediate species in the reaction products of the experime...
