Titanium Alloys for Biomedical Development and Applications: Design, Microstructure, Properties and Application systematically introduces basic theories and progress in the research of biomedical β-Ti alloys achieved by researchers from different fields. It focuses on a high-strength and low elastic modulus biomedical β-Ti alloy (TLM), etc. designed by the authors. The alloy design methods, microstructural characteristics, mechanical properties, surface treatment methods and biocompatibility of the TLM alloy are discussed in detail, along with a concise description of the medical devices made from this alloy and the application examples. This book will appeal to researchers as well as students from different disciplines, including materials science, biology, medicine and engineering fields.

About the Author

Zhentao Yu

Dr. Zhentao Yu is currently working as Professor and Director at the Biomedical Materials Technology Research Center, Jinan University (JU), Guangzhou, China, and part-time with Northwest Institute for Nonferrous Metal Research (NIN), Xi’an, China. He was elected as a managing director of the Chinese Society for Biomaterials (CSBM) and was the Vice Director of the Biomedical Metal Materials Branch of the CSBM. He is a board member of the Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices and Tissue Engineering Medical Device Products Board, China. In 2018, he was identified by Shaanxi Province as the first batch of top talents in natural science and key leaders in technology innovation. He had undertaken more than 39 scientific projects, including the State 863 Plan, 973 Plan (China) and other significant projects. His research outcomes have been recognised through 11 provincial science and technology prizes. Over the past 17 years, Dr Yu has led the development of 3 new biomedical β-titanium alloys, referred to as TLM (Ti-3Zr-2Sn-3Mo-25Nb), TiB12 (Ti-6Zr-4Sn-10Mo-3Nb), TLE (Ti-5Zr-6Mo-20Nb) etc., which possesses high strength, low modulus, good plasticity and excellent biocompatibility. On this basis, he and him team have manufactured them into different product forms such as tube, rod, plate and wires etc., and also eight different types of medical devices, such as teeth implants, joints, stents, blade plate and bone screw. His team circumvented a range of scientific problem`s and developed the key processing technologies for the manufacture of TLM alloy medical devices. Dr Yu has 52 patents and more than 220 peer-reviewed publications. In addition, he has edited and co-edited four technical books.
