TSU chemists will help reduce implant rejection
Scientists of TSU’s Faculty of Chemistry are developing a new approach to the creating composite materials for use in traumatology and orthopedics. Researchers have suggested using a sol-gel method that would improve the structure of bioactive coatings. This, in turn, will reduce the percentage of implant rejection and accelerate patients’ rehabilitation. Their research is supported by a grant from the President of the Russian Federation.
The advantages of sol-gel synthesis are a high degree of homogeneity of particles, the possibility of coating materials of any shape and any sizes, and the purity of the final product.
