    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rezvani, Alireza (Author) ; Ekrami, Ali Akbar (Supervisor) ; Ziaei Moayyed, Ali Akbar (Supervisor)
    Titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V ELI with high biocompatibility and corrosion resistance, has a lot of applications in biomedical engineering. Disadvantage of this alloy is it’s disability to create a fast and good contact with the host/bone environment, after implanting in the body. Beside that it has low wear resistance. Nowadays to optimize the wear resistance, bioactivity and osteoconduction of surface of implants which are made from this alloy, the surface morphology are optimized in size and distribution. Different surface treatments are used for producing rough and porous surfaces to improve bioactivity along with wear resistance. In this study, surface modification of Ti-6Al-4V ELI was done...

    Ceramic coatings on metallic substrates are used in many different applications. In biomaterials science, hydroxyapatite coating due to its similarity to the mineral part of bone structure is used to modification of implants surface. In this research, the HA/TiO2 double layer was coated on Ti-6Al-4V by sol- gel dip-coating method. After preparation of stable TiO2 sol, the Ti-6Al-4V substrate was dipped into the TiO2 sol. The speed of dipping was 10cm/min. After drying at 80°C, the TiO2 layer heat-treated at different temperature (350-500°C) for 1h. The HA outer layer was coated by dipping of Ti-6Al-4V substrate with TiO2 layer into HA sol, followed by heat-treatment at different temperatures...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Zamani, Mohammad Hasan (Author) ; Abachi, Parvin (Supervisor) ; Ziaei Moayyed, Ali Akbar (Supervisor)
    Porous titanium and titanium alloys products are proper to use as implants which because of good properties such as high corrosion resistance, good biocompatibility, high strength to weight ratio and low elastic modulus. Porosity induces a decrease in elastic modulus and an increase of bioactivity. In present work, porous specimens of pure titanium and Ti-26Nb-1Si alloy were produced via conventional powder metallurgy route by applying low pressure. The influence of TiH2 Powder addition on some physical and mechanical properties of samples was investigated. The amount of TiH2 powder was used in the range of 0-40 weight percent. The powders were firstly mixed for 3 hours and then compacted... 

    Effect of Surface Treatment on Bioactivity of Ti-6Al-4V Alloy

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Omidi Razani, Abbas Ali (Author) ; Asgari, Sirous (Supervisor)
    In this research Ti-6Al-4V samples were surface treated with acid, alkali and sandblasting treatment. Alkali treatment parameter was the NaOH concentration. The results of roughness measurement demonstrate that increase in NaOH Concentration results in rougher surface. Sandblasting produces rough surfaces in the scale of 1 to 10 micrometers. Acid treatment reduces initial roughness and the resultant roughness is in the under micrometer scale. After surface treatment, samples were soaked in simulated body fluid for invitro assessment. Results of this analysis indicate that sample with sandblasting+chemical treatment has the best invitro bioactivity. Chemical+sandblasting treated sample shows...

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Tamjid Shabestary, Elnaz (Author) ; Bagheri, Reza (Supervisor) ; Vossoughi, Manouchehr (Supervisor) ; Simchi, Abdolreza (Co-Advisor)
    Polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffolds and its composites containing bioactive glass particles (45S5) and TiO2 nanostructures with pre-defined and controlled external and internal architecture were prepared via an indirect three-dimensional (3D) printing process. The scaffolds had an interconnected structure with macro- (400-500 μm) and micro- (~25 μm) pores. Bioactivity, mechanical behavior and kinetics of tissue growth in 3D scaffolds were studied. The size effect of biogactive glass particles (6 μm, 250 nm, <100 nm) and morphology of titania nanostructures (spherical, tube, leaf-like, and flower-like particles) were elaborated. The biogactive glass particles with different sizes were prepared... 

    Bioglass Coating on 316L Stainless Steel

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Pourhashem, Sepideh (Author) ; Afshar, Abdollah (Supervisor)
    Bioactive glasses are able to bond to soft and hard tissues in living body and their application as coating on metallic implants like 316L stainless steel has two important effects: (1) intimate link between bone and materials and (2) corrosion protection of metallic implant in body fluid and protection from tissues in front of corrosion products. Therefore, in this research, 45S5 bioactive glass prepared via sol- gel method was dip coated on 316L stainless steel substrates and its characteristics was investigated.Results of phase analysis showed that by sintering 45S5 bioglass at 600 ˚C for 5 h, an amorph sample with small amount of Na2Ca2Si3O9 was obtained. So, the bioglass coated samples...

    Natural tissues of body consist of Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) and cells. Scaffold produces a temporary matrix for cells and facilitates oxygen and nutrients transport which enhances tissue regeneration. Therefore, attempts in regeneration of tissues and organs by scaffolds attracted great interest in today’s researchs. Choosing scaffold fabrication method and its polymer type, play a key role in scaffold specifications as they determine scaffold properties. In this project electrospinning was chosen as the scaffold fabrication method which is because of the unique properties of scaffolds fabricated by this method and also its ability in producing micro and nano fibers.

    The use of polyether ether ketone (PEEK) in bone implants is limited due to a lack of cell adhesion and proliferation. Therefore, in this study, we modified the surface of PEEK with a nanocomposite coating containing piezoelectric and bioactive properties. Sulfonated PEEK with suitable mechanical and hydrophilic properties along with polyvinylidene fluoride was used as a biocompatible polymer with piezoelectric properties for coating. Also, nanohydroxyapatite was used as a bioactive material, and carbon nanofibers with significant mechanical and electrical properties were used in the nanocomposite. The surface was sulfonated as an intermediate layer to improve the connection between the...
