Patent gallery


A teacher from the Materials Engineering Department participates in the Sixth Patents and Industrial Models Exhibition of the Ministry of Industry and Minerals (2023)
Asst. Lect. Nizar Jabbar Abdel Redha, a Faculty  member in the Department of Materials Engineering at the University of Technology, at the Sixth Patents and Industrial Models Exhibition of the Ministry of Industry and Minerals (2023), which was held by the Industrial Research and Development Authority of the Ministry of Industry and Minerals on 9/12/2023 with the patent tagged
“Producing silicon nanosheets (silicin) and adding them to artificial bone grafts.”
More than 180 patents and 50 industrial models participated in the exhibition
The Shield of Excellence was obtained for the participating patent.

The current work aims to produce bioceramics composites reinforced with novelty nanostructured fillers that may be a turning point for bioceramics.
The choice of silicene came because of its unique properties and is considered the next generation after graphene.
Hydroxyapatite and Tri-calcium phosphate were selected as vital basic materials as a starting point in this work. A number of composite materials were synthesized as a result of the synthesis of these two materials at rates. As well as the reinforcement of the base materials individually and composite with silicene fillers percentage (1, 3, 5) %.
Powder technology  is the method adopted for preparing samples for Mechanical ,Physical, Biological tests as well as composition (XRD, SEM) as two tests analysis the general behaviour of the materials produced in this work.
The results showed the positive effect of adding silicene on the general properties of the base and composite materials, as well as obtaining unique cases by involving more than one property that improves, as well as the absence of all the materials used from the toxic effect.

Whereas, the discussion took place in the postgraduate hall in Building B in the department on Tuesday, 3/8/2023 at nine o'clock in the morning, and the discussion committee consisted of ladies and Gentlemen


  • Dr.Farhad Mohamed Othman , Chairman Prof. Dr. Mahdi Qasim Zaier , member
  • Dr. Shaymaa Salah Mahdi , member
  • Asst. Prof. Dr. Hana’a Areer Semej , as a Supervisor
  • Prof. Dr. Mojhaned Najah Jawad , as a Supervisor

In addition to scientifically evaluating the dissertation by Prof. Dr. Enas Huhi Hadi  Mustafa/ University of Technology/ Department of Applied Science Engineering, and asst. Prof. Dr. Issra Qahtan Sabri / University of Babylon/ College of Materials Engineering, and linguistically by a Lect.. Dr. Ali Abdulkareem Muhsin / University of Technology/ Department of Materials Engineering

After the discussion committee recorded its observations on the thesis, which were in between explanation and correction, the student's defense of her thesis, and the end of the discussion, the committee decided to evaluate the thesis, and decided to grant the student a master's degree with a Pass Grade


The study aims to improve the osseointegration of 316L stainless steel while maintaining its good mechanical properties, by applying a modified hybrid coating layer of a PMMA-based compound with different amounts of silver NP and biologically active ceramic particles as reinforcing materials on 316L stainless steel by depositing a bonding coating layer by the electroless AgNP method and top coating by electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) with different ratios of (PMMA and NiO). The coating process was successful with multiple layers on the 316L stainless steel substrate and the resistance to corrosion.
