Abstract: Recently, there has been increasing importance on scaffold materials that could be used in biomaterials. In the present study, equimolar TiNbZr medium entropy alloys (MEAs) and porous TiNbZr alloy scaffolds were produced by mechanical alloying (MA) that is a powder metallurgy processing technique. The MA process was carried out using high energy planetary ball mill. Ammonium bicarbonate (NH4HCO3) at different percentage ratio was used as space holder to fabricate the porous TiNbZr scaffolds with using space-holder sintering method. Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) was performed for consolidation of mechanically alloyed powders. Finally, the green compact samples were sintered in tube furnace under vacuum atmosphere. The microstructural analyses, phase composition, porosity and density measurement, compression and microhardness tests and wear resistance of bulk alloys were examined. The X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) patterns of all samples indicated the dominant beta-Ti phases and small amount of alpha-Ti phase. SEM (scanning electron microscope) images for porous TiNbZr alloy scaffolds demonstrated that porosity increased with increase of space holders amount. With the increasing porosity content, density, hardness, compressive strength and the elastic modulus of samples decreased while wear rate increased.
