Iranian Researchers Produce Advanced Nano Materials for Medical Implants
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian scientists at Tehran University succeeded in the production of a new type of dental implants by production of a strong alloy using nanotechnology.

“At present, these types of implants are made of titanium alloy containing vanadium metal and aluminium which are harmful,” Qader Faraji, the executor of the plan, said on Tuesday.

He added that they have applied advanced technology of ‘severe plastic deformation’ to produce the new implants.

“The new product has a nano structure and the toxic metals have been filtered out but the product is as strong as the titanium alloy containing vanadium metal and aluminium. The product is now in the state of commercialization,” Faraji said.

Iran is a leading nation in nanotechnology. Only in 2018, Iranian researchers published 9,662 papers and articles in the field of nanotechnology, bringing the country among the top 4 in the world in this area of technology.

In 2018 compared with 2017, Iran remained on its previous spot, ranking 4th place by publication of 9,662 nano-articles and Islamic Azad University carried the largest number of nano-articles last year, according to a report released by StatNano.

StatNano, a comprehensive statistical database portal, which has been compiling and releasing the data and statistics related to nanotechnology using scientific methodologies since 2010, is today one of the most reliable references of researchers and policymakers around the world. The statistics of the nano-articles published by each country are reported by StatNano on a monthly basis, which collects them by searching the appropriate terms in the search engine of the WoS.

Accordingly, in 2018, more than 166,000 articles related to nanotechnology were published, indicating an increase of more than 7% compared to the corresponding period last year. In addition to research articles, over 9,000 review articles were also published in the past year, which comprise nearly 5% of all nanotechnology publications.

In 2018 compared with 2017, the top 5 countries of the world in nanoscience generation remained on their previous spots.

As in the past years, the share of nano-articles in the total scientific publications has still been growing. In 2018, around 9.7% of the total scientific publications were related to nanotechnology, which has been the highest since 2014.
