Biocompatible titanium-based alloys for medical prosthetics from complex microalloyed systems
Design, elaboration and investigation of new, original biocompatible alloy systems, the new variant of alloys contains different values of the alloying percentage of non-toxic elements (Mo and Si) in order to improve the mechanical properties (mechanical strength, modulus of elasticity), alloys that have a good corrosion resistance and biocompatibility corresponding to.
- Designing, obtaining, and testing of Ti-Mo-Si type alloys for medical applications, with the ultimate goal of promoting a new generation of titanium alloys;
- Employing 2 young researchers with full time (TUIASI și INCDFT-IFT IAȘI);
- In vitro biocompatibility study, implantation, osteointegration study, and resorption rate on animal experimental model;
- Testing and complete characterization of biomaterials obtained for patenting;
- Dissemination of results, attracting the interest of implant manufacturers to create medical devices from the new alloy system.
- Obtaining and structural characterization of at least eight Ti-based alloys with Mo and Si alloys with medical applications;
- Determination of functional properties and biocompatibility in vitro and in vivo of orthopedic alloys in the Ti-Mo-Si system;
- Evaluation of experimental results on the Ti-Mo-Si alloy system;
- Identifying an optimal Ti-Mo-Si ideal composition for orthopedic implants and identifying a global composition of the Ti-Mo-Zr-Ta-Si complex system;
- Publication of at least 6 articles in ISI-indexed journals, development of at least two new patents and participation in international exhibitions, fairs and salons of research.
