Abstract

Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr alloy was produced and studied in the work. Plates and wires were made of this alloy. The alloy was shown to have pure β-crystalline phase and to possess the required mechanical properties. Microstructures with a height of the order of several hundred nm, located at a distance of 1.5-2.0 μm were observed on the surface of the alloy. From the point of view of reactive oxygen species generation and long-lived reactive protein species formation, the Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr alloy is more preferrable than nitinol. Cultivation of cell cultures on Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr surfaces resulted in high mitotic index (2%) and low content of non-viable cells (<5%). The cells were actively attaching and spreading on the alloy. Biocompatibility of Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr was confirmed by the experiments on implantation of the alloy as plates and coiled wires. The surface morphology of the specimens did not alter significantly after the biological trials. It can be suggested that Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr alloy is an appropriate material for potential medical applications.

Abstract

Carbon/carbon composite has superior properties, so it has been expected to use various industrial fields. However, low mechanical strength (than conventional structural materials) works as a hurdle, so the use of oxidative stabilization to improve the mechanical strength of carbon/carbon composites was studied. The oxidation process was performed at 220∼350 °C based on thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The compressive strength of the oxidized sample at 290 °C was 212 MPa, which is 2.5 times greater than that of the non-oxidized sample (84 MPa). However, the oxidation temperature of more than 290 °C decreased the compressive strength (199 MPa at 350 °C). This tendency was in accordance with the TGA and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) results. The effect of oxidative stabilization can be explained by two factors: the polymerization of the used binder pitch by the crosslinking effect by induced oxygen and improvement of the affinity between the coke and binder pitch.

Abstract

The surface chemistry of an exemplary hot-dip galvanized Zn-Al-Mg coating comprising 1.6 wt.% aluminum and 1.1 wt.% magnesium was characterized by means of secondary and transmission electron microscopy as well as synchrotron radiation X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Lamellae of the coating prepared via focused ion beam technique were examined through energy dispersive X-ray analysis. Further the effect of alkaline and acid treatment respectively was investigated by employing time of flight secondary ion mass spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray analysis and glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy. Throughout this work it is shown that both alkaline (NaOH) and acid (H2SO4) solutions alter the chemical composition when applied to the coating surface. With the native Zn-Al-Mg system yielding a complex microstructure covered by a magnesium and aluminum rich oxide film, highly alkaline surroundings (pH > 13) caused a decrease of aluminum at the uppermost surface. Every deployed acid solution (pH < 2.4) lead to a preferred pickling of the magnesium compounds including the oxide layer plus the intermetallic MgZn2 phases of the coating. Exposure to both highly alkaline and acid environments corresponded to a higher proportion of zinc at the coating surface measured by all applied surface analytical tools indicating that the modification of the chemical composition took place on both nanoscopic and microscopic scale.

Abstract

On the basis of the principles of simultaneous equilibrium, conservation of mass, and aqueous electronic charge neutrality and the correspondence principle of ion entropy, the high-temperature thermodynamics of the ZnO–NH4Cl–H2O system was studied to predict solubility and construct Zn species distribution. The model was constructed precisely by using the MATLAB program. The total Zn2+ concentration in the solution was affected significantly by temperature and total ammonium concentration. ZnNH3Cl3 was the predominant species in the ZnO–NH4Cl–H2O system. The solubility of zinc diammine chloride in NH4Cl solution (>2 mol·L-1) in the temperature range of 303–353 K was determined using equilibrium experiments, which had results that agreed well with the theoretical value. The data and high-temperature thermodynamic model used in this paper are reliable.
