  1. 1. Spark plasma sintered ZrO2-SiO2 glass ceramics and Si3N4 bioceramics

    Author : Le Fu; Wei Xia; Håkan Engqvist; Jérôme Chevalier; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ZrO2-SiO2 glass ceramic; high-strength; translucency; 3D nano-architecture; Si3N4 bioceramic; biodegradable; spark plasma sintering; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on elaboration and characterization of two types of bioceramics: one is ZrO2-SiO2 nanocrystalline glass ceramic (NCGC) for dental application. The goal is to develop new ZrO2-SiO2 NCGCs with a combination of high strength and high translucency; the other is biodegradable Si3N4 ceramics for spinal fusion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ceramic Materials for Administration of Potent Drugs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bing Cai; Susanne Bredenberg; Håkan Engqvist; Wei Xia; Miguel Manzano García; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tamper-resistance; Oral formulation; Transdermal formulation; Biomaterials; Microneedles;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate and document the potential of applying ceramics in two specific drug delivery applications: tamper-resistant opioid formulations and transdermal enhancement protrusions.Geopolymers were developed into the matrix for a tamper-resistant formulation, aiming to protect drug substances from non-medical abuse.

  3. 3. Functional properties of silicon nitride based materials for joint applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Luimar N. Corrêa Filho; Cecilia Persson; Julia Shelton; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Silicon nitride; Coatings; Wear; Joint replacements; HiPIMS; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Total hip and total knee replacements are generally successful procedures for patients suffering with pain due to bone fracture or diseases affecting the joints. However, the materials that are commonly used still have limitations. In particular, corrosion products and wear debris may give rise to negative body reactions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Influence of a dental ceramic and a calcium aluminate cement on dental biofilm formation and gingival inflammatory response

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Katarina Konradsson; Jan van Dijken; Rolf Claesson; Lars Gahnberg; [2007]
    Keywords : cements; ceramics; cytotoxicity; dental biofilm; gingivitis; interleukin-1; oral hygiene; resin composite;

    Abstract : Dental restorative materials interact with their surrounding oral environment. Interaction factors can be release of toxic components and/or effects on biofilm formation and gingiva. In the end of the nineties, a calcium aluminate cement (CAC) was manufactured as a “bioceramic” alternative to resin composite. READ MORE
