Metallic biomaterials Basic properties: 1. Crystalline 2. Non-directional bonding-allow for many crystal structures Defined by the unit cell Metals have a variety of crystal structures depending on temperature, processing, and alloying 3. Three major metallic material crystal structures:

Metallic biomaterials Defects in crystal structures: 1. Crystal structures are not perfect 2. Defects can be good or bad 3. Many types of defects but we will focus on point defects

Metallic biomaterials Alloy: metal, composing of a mixture of elements. Preparation: melting, sintering of powder mixtures, diffusion of alloying element into base metal, plasma/vapor deposition of elements Single or a multi-phase alloy structure Phase: uniform part of an alloy, with a certain chemical composition and structure- separated by phase boundaries Solid solution: phase where 2 or more elements are completely soluble Two types of solid solutions? Addition of impurities-Solid Solutions

Metallic biomaterials Solid solution: phase where 2 or more elements are completely soluble: Substitution or Interstitial Addition of impurities-Solid Solutions What happens with excess solute element? Hume-Rothery rules?

Metallic biomaterials Addition of impurities-Solid Solutions Alloys are used to impart: strength, corrosion resistance, or improved electrical properties Examples: Interstitial alloys: steels (carbon and iron)- stainless steel orthopedic implants Substitutional alloys: cobalt-chromium alloys- orthopedic implants

Metallic biomaterials Addition of impurities-Solid Solutions Alloys are used to impart: strength, corrosion resistance, or improved electrical properties Interstitial alloys: steels (carbon and iron): one of the most common is 316L stainless steel 1. Designation “L” means low carbon steel ~ 0.030% C by weight 2. Composition: Fe (60-65%), Cr (17-20%), and Nickel (12-14%) + minor amounts of other additives 3. Alloying for microstructure, both surface and bulk 4. Role of Cr: form a surface oxide “corrosion resistance”. Downside? 5. Why add Ni? 6. Why low C? What happens above 0.03%? Cr 2 O 3 and Cr 23 C 6

Metallic biomaterials Addition of impurities-Solid Solutions Substitutional alloys: cobalt-based alloys- used in orthopedic implants. Two groups, four main types: 1. F75 and F799 (Co-Cr-Mo) : basically same composition. What’s the difference? Processing.
