Porous bioceramic scaffolds based on akermanite obtained by 3D printing for bone tissue engineering

Ceramics International 2023 Volume 49, Issue 22, Pages 35898-35906

Porous bioceramic scaffolds were obtained by the 3D printing technique starting from a mixture of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose and a powder obtained by sol-gel method which contains merwinite, monticellite, pseudowolastonie and periclase.The scaffolds were thermally treated at 1370 °C for 3 h and the main mineralogical compound assessed by XRD was akermanite. The obtained scaffolds have adequate mechanical and biological properties thus a great potential for applications in hard tissue engineering. The positive results obtained for this type of scaffolds are due to the precision of 3D printing technique, i.e. ability to control shape and size of both scaffolds and…

Development of 3D ZnO-CNT Support Structures Impregnated with Inorganic Salts

Membranes 2022 Volume 12, Issue 6, Article 588

Carbon-based materials are promising candidates for enhancing thermal properties of phase change materials (PCMs) without lowering its energy storage capacity. Nowadays, researchers are trying to find a proper porous structure as PCMs support for thermal energy storage applications. In this context, the main novelty of this paper consists in using a ZnO-CNT-based nanocomposite powder, prepared by an own hydrothermal method at high pressure, to obtain porous 3D printed support structures with embedding capacity of PCMs. The morphology of 3D structures, before and after impregnation with three PCMs inorganic salts (NaNO3, KNO3 and NaNO3:KNO3 mixture (1:1 vol% saturated solution) was investigated…

Prediction Of Mechanical Performance Of 3d Printed CaMgSi2O6 Architectures

4th International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Materials Engineering EmergeMAT 2021 Page 24

In bone tissue engineering, 3D printing technology represents a promising means to obtain complex architectures with the possibility to control precisely the pore size.Diopside (CaMgSi2O6) is a biomaterial which has the ability to induce in vitro apatite formation and in vivo growth and differentiation of the osteoblast. CaMgSi2O6 is a biocompatible material that possesses good bending strength and fracture toughness, bioactivity and slow degradation rate. Due to its outstanding properties diopside has tremendous potential in medical applications.
