Producing Anti-corrosion Nanocoats to Improve Metal Implants

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 15:25

Researchers at Najaf Abad branch of Islamic Azad University have produced nanocoats that can be placed on metal implants to eliminate their defects and ensure that they have no harmful effect on the human body.


Considering the need for producing nanocoats that are both mechanically and biologically appropriate, Majid Abdollahi, one of the researchers, stated that “hydroxyapatite particles were used as a strong biocompatible substance in this research. Also, diopside, a ceramic substance, was used as a mechanically favorable element. The obtained nanocomposite is mechanically appropriate, biocompatible, chemically stable, and corrosion resistant, and can be used as a unique coating in the orthopedics industry.”

The findings of the study were published in the Ceramics International Journal, volume 41, number 9, year 2015, pages 12355 to 12363 in paper authored by Majid Abdollahi, Amir Salar Khandan, and Ebrahim Karamian.
