An Iranian student has received special recognition for his research findings on “optimal production of smart antibacterial nano-structured titanium implant".

Alireza Rafieerad the Iranian PhD student from the University of Malaya received special recognition for his research findings on “optimal production of smart antibacterial nano-structured titanium implant", Mehr News reports.

“In recent years, with the increase in demand for artificial tissues, biodegradable resistant titanium alloys have been widely used in bone and dental implants,” he said.

“These materials have higher mechanical and biological properties and greater resistance to abrasion and corrosion compared to other alloys common in industry and they are also more preferable in terms of performance and economy,” he explained.

“In my project, the biodegradable resistant titanium alloy (Ti67) has been used as the implant undercoat,” he added.

Rafieerad said that these implants have been improved to achieve a better general performance and replace the bone tissue in the long run.

Alireza Rafieerad received recognition as the PhD candidate with the highest impact publication in sciences from the University of Malaya in 2017.
