This study has been carried out to optimise the silver (Ag) content of the coating synthesised on commercially pure titanium (Cp-Ti, Grade 4) for biomedical applications by micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process. The MAO process has been conducted in electrolytes containing silver acetate (AgC2H3O2) at different concentrations between 0 and 0.002 mol L-1. When compared to the base electrolyte, coatings synthesised in >= 0.001 mol L-1 AgC2H3O2 added electrolytes exhibited an antibacterial efficiency of 99.8% against Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus). Detailed examination revealed that the presence of 0.01 mol L-1 AgC2H3O2 in the electrolyte resulted in incorporation of 1.4 wt-% Ag into fabricated coating consisting mainly of outer hydroxyapatite (HA) and inner titanium oxide (TiO2) layers. In comparison to the Ag-free coating, 1.4 wt-% Ag in the coating lowered the proliferation of SAOS-2 cells, which still tended to grow at a relatively low rate with increasing culturing time.


Designing of Ti-Mg composites for various applications
Bütev Öcal, Ezgi; Dericioğlu, Arcan F.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
In this study, galvanic corrosion of Ti-Mg based composites has been examined by combining different Mg-alloys with Ti6Al4V alloy and by addition of Na-rich layer between two dissimilar metals. After determining the wetting behavior of liquid unalloyed Mg, AZ91, and WE43 alloys on solid Ti6Al4V alloy, three different composites were manufactured via infiltration of liquid Mg/Mg-alloys into porous Ti6Al4V alloy skeletons. The same procedure was also repeated after coating the porous surfaces of Ti6Al4V alloy...

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...
Selective laser melting of Nano-TiN reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel: Densification, microstructure and mechanical properties
Ozsoy, Andac; Aydoğan Güngör, Eda; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2022-03-01)
In this study, TiN-reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel was produced by selective laser melting (SLM). It was aimed to utilize nano-sized TiN particles both as inoculants to obtain an equiaxed microstructure in as-built condition and as dislocation barriers to improve mechanical properties. SLM process parameters development was conducted for TiN-reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel powders. Consistent with the literature, it was observed that SLM processing window shifts to higher energy densities with the add...
Conducting FTO coatings produced using ultrasonic spray pyrolysis for heating applications
Süer, Başar; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2018)
In this thesis, fluorine doped tin dioxide (FTO) coatings were deposited on AISI 304 stainless steel (SS) substrates using ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) technique. Four different candidate insulating intermediate layers of TiO2, MgO, Al2O3 and SiO2 were selected and coated on AISI 304 using USP and investigated in order to overcome dielectric breakdown of FTO layer due to conductive nature of stainless steel substrate under the applied voltage. After the optimization of the process parameters for the dep...
Genotoxicity study of high aspect ratio silver nanowires

The genotoxicity potential of silver nanowires synthesized via the solution-based polyol method has been investigated. They were found to be non-mutagenic in three Salmonella strains and were not genotoxic in a clastogenicity assay in mice. Residual surfactant was found to have an effect on the toxicological properties of the nanowires by increasing the rate of Ag+ release. Residual surfactant can be easily degraded via a UV treatment.
