TiO(2) coatings were prepared on NiTi alloy by heat treatment in air at 300, 400, 600 and 800 degrees C. The heat-treated NiTi alloy was subsequently immersed in a simulated body fluid for the biomimetic deposition of the apatite layer onto the surface of TiO(2) coating. The apatite coatings as well as the surface oxide layer on NiTi alloy were(More)
Porous NiTi with an average porosity of 55 vol % and a general pore size of 100-600 microm was synthesized by self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) with the addition of mechanically alloyed nanocrystalline Ni-Ti as the reaction agent. The SHS of porous NiTi using elemental powders was also performed for comparison. To enhance the bioactivity of(More)
Polypropylene nanocomposites reinforced with organic modified montmorillonite clay have been fabricated by melt compounding using extrusion. The morphology of the composites is studied with transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The melt-state rheological properties of the nanocomposites have been investigated as a function of temperature(More)
