Implant osseointegration is a prerequisite for clinical achievement in orthopaedic and dental applications many of which are restricted by loosening. to enhanced osteoblastic function compared to unmodified titanium. Furthermore this integrin-targeted coating significantly improved peri-implant bone regeneration and osseointegration as characterized by bone-implant contact and mechanical fixation compared to untreated titanium in a rat cortical bone-implant model. GFOGER-modified implants also significantly enhanced osseointegration compared to surfaces modified with full-length type Anacetrapib I collagen highlighting the importance of presenting specific Anacetrapib biofunctional domains within the native ligand. In addition this biomimetic implant coating is generated using a simple single-step procedure that readily translates to a clinical environment with minimal processing and cytotoxicity concerns. Therefore this study establishes a biologically active and clinically relevant implant ...

*  Preparation and characterization of autocatalytic low phosphorus nickel coatings containing submicron silicon nitride particles...
This paper addresses the structural characteristics and phase transformation behavior of plain electroless Ni-P and Ni-P-Si3N4 composite coatings. Composite coatings were prepared using a low phosphorus electroless nickel bath containing 1 and 5 g/L submicron silicon nitride particles at pH 6.5 and temperature 85 +/- 2 degrees C. Deposition rate was around 6 mu m/h for both plain and composite coatings. The amount of silicon nitride particles codeposited in the Ni-P matrix is 3.5 wt.% (N1) and 4.5 wt.% (N2) with the addition of I and 5 g/L particles in the bath. Deposit surface composition analysis carried out by energy-dispersive analysis of X-ray (EDX) results shows that plain Ni-P and Ni-P-Si3N4 deposits are having around 3.5 wt.% phosphorus. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns of Ni-P-Si3N4 coatings are very similar to that of plain electroless Ni-P coating in as-deposited condition. Presence of a single high intensity peak at 44.8 degrees 20 which corresponds to Ni(111) peak is present in ...

*  Development of polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes to reduce the COD level of electrocoagulation treated high-strength...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Development of polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes to reduce the COD level of electrocoagulation treated high-strength wastewater. AU - Sanyal,Oishi. AU - Liu,Zhiguo. AU - Meharg,Brooke M.. AU - Liao,Wei. AU - Lee,Ilsoon. PY - 2015/12/15. Y1 - 2015/12/15. N2 - This study focused on developing a membrane-based purification process, coupled with electrocoagulation (EC) as the pretreatment step, to reduce the COD level of an anaerobic digestion effluent. Commercial brackish water reverse osmosis (RO) membranes offer high COD removal but very low water fluxes. In an effort to address this issue, polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) membranes were fabricated by the surface modification of loose nanofiltration membranes using layer-by-layer assembly technique. The application of PEM membranes to treat wastewater effluents has not been explored in details. Two polyelectrolyte combinations were tried - the first one consisted of poly (diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride) and poly (styrene ...
*  Preparation of acetaminophen capsules containing beads prepared by hot-melt direct blend coating method
The thrust of this thesis is to study oral solid dosage formulation using hot melt coating method and to use pharmacokinetic modeling and simulation (PK M&S) as a tool that can help to predict pharmacokinetics of a drug in human and the probability of passing various bioequivalence criteria of the formulation based on the PK of the drug. Hot-melt coating using a new method, direct blending, was performed to create immediate and sustained release formulations (IR and SR). This new method was introduced to offer another choice to produce IR and SR drug delivery formulations using single and double coating layer of waxes onto sugar beads and/or drug loaded pellets. Twelve waxes were applied to coat sugar cores. The harder the wax the slower the drug was released from single coated beads. The wax coating can be deposited up to 28% of the weight of the core bead with 58% drug loading efficiency in the coating The cores were coated with single or double wax layers containing ...

A 72-year-old woman with peripheral arterial disease presented with a 5-day history of rest pain of the left lower leg. Nine years earlier, she had undergone left-sided femoropopliteal bypass surgery, with multiple endovascular procedures thereafter. Examination revealed absent popliteal and pedal pulses in the symptomatic leg and an ankle-brachial pressure index of 0.44. Magnetic resonance angiography revealed thrombotic occlusion of the bypass graft and multiple subsequent stenoses (Figure 1). The patient underwent endovascular mechanical thrombectomy of the bypass graft plus angioplasty of the distal bypass anastomosis and popliteal artery using 2 paclitaxel-eluting balloons (In.Pact Admiral, Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota) (Figure 2). ...
Titanium oxide catalysts are some of the most promising photocatalyst candidates for renewable energy storage applications via production of solar fuels. To contribute to a molecular-level understanding of the interaction of CO$_{2}$ with titanium oxide, we turn to cluster models in order to circumvent the challenges posed by speciation in the condensed phase. In this work, we use infrared photodissociation spectroscopy ($950-2400$ cm$^{-1}$) in concert with density functional theory calculations to identify and characterize $[text{TiO}_{x}(text{CO}_{2})_{y}]^{-}$ ($x$ = $1-3$, $y$ = $3-7$) clusters. We use these model systems to study the interaction of CO$_{2}$ with TiO, TiO$_{2}$, and TiO$_{3}$, and we find that each species exhibits unique infrared signatures and binding motifs. We will discuss the structures of these cluster ions, and how the coordination of the titanium atom plays a role in reduction of CO$_{2 ...
*  Development of Ceramic Coated Exhaust Manifolds for Heavy Duty Diesel Engines - SAE International
Along with the effort to improve engines for exhaust gas emission reduction and high power performance, the increment of exhaust gas temperature emerged as a new problem causing inner surface oxidation and thermal deformation of exhaust manifolds particularly.Under such circumstance, a novel ceramic coating exhaust manifold has been developed. This coating is composed two layers. The inner layer is oxidation resistant layer of comparably compact structure having same thermal expansion coefficient as the cast iron substrate, and the outer one is thermal insulating layer of very porous structure. These two coating layers have therefore made it possible to withstand the crack and peeling off because of the thermal impact of high temperature exhaust gas and made it applicable to the complex figured inner surface.This newly development coating process shall convert a conventional ductile iron manifold to a superior heat resistant manifold by application of the ceramic coating ...
*  Engineering well-characterized PEG-coated nanoparticles for elucidating biological barriers to drug delivery<...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Engineering well-characterized PEG-coated nanoparticles for elucidating biological barriers to drug delivery. AU - Yang,Qi. AU - Lai,Samuel K.. PY - 2017. Y1 - 2017. N2 - Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) coatings can substantially reduce nanoparticle uptake and clearance by immune cells as well as nonspecific interactions with the biological environment, thus potentially improving nanoparticle circulation times and biodistribution in target tissues such as tumors. Naturally, the "stealth" properties of PEG coatings are critically dependent on the density and conformation of surface PEG chains. However, there are significant technical hurdles to both generating sufficiently dense PEG coatings on nanoparticles and precisely characterizing their PEG grafting densities. Here, we describe methods for preparing PEGylated polymeric nanoparticles with precisely tunable PEG coatings without the use of organic solvents, quantifying PEGylation efficiency and density using a standard ...

Such a profile-preserving polymer coating can be used to change or enhance the surface properties of the microstructured substrate while maintaining the function of the structure.
*  AIST Steel Glossary
Aluminized Sheet: This is sheet steel to which a thin, hot-dip, aluminum-silicon alloy coating has been applied. It is primarily used in applications that must withstand or reflect heat and resist corrosion at temperatures that are higher than galvanized coatings can cope with. The silicon content is usually 5-11% and this promotes adherence of the coating to the substrate. Although most aluminized coatings are applied to cold rolled carbon steel, they are also used on some ferritic stainless steels in order to give car exhausts life-of-vehicle durability. Aluminized steel is very formable, and typical applications are vehicle exhaust pipes, ovens, furnaces, heat exchangers and bakeware. The coating is said to be particularly good at resisting salt spray and exhaust condensate corrosion. ...

Polymer stents composed of polyethylene terephthalate ([18]) or PLLA ([19]) or metal stents coated with polyurethane or the biologic polymer fibrin ([20]) have been tested for biocompatibility in porcine and canine models, although the usefulness of these designs for drug delivery has not yet been reported. Stents coated with cellulose ester polymer were used to deliver heparin or methotrexate, or both, in the porcine coronary injury model ([21]), demonstrating apparent biocompatibility over 28 days but no therapeutic effect on reduction of neointimal hyperplasia. Drug delivery to the arterial tissue was not assessed in that study. Lambert et al. ([22]) utilized a nitinol metal stent coated with a polyurethane to deliver forskolin to the rabbit carotid artery. More than 95% of the forskolin was eluted from the stent coating during the first 24 h after deployment. Arterial wall concentrations of forskolin were demonstrated to increase to 460-fold greater than ...
