Morphologies of Nano-Sized Apatite Formed on Titanium Substrate by Biomimetic Process
Abstract:The apatite was formed on the titanium plates with NaOH and heat treatments by biomimetic process. The influence of titanium surface microstructure on the apatite formation onto titanium substrate in SBF solution was investigated. After biomimetic process, nano-sized apatite layers were found on the Ti plates with NaOH and heat treatments. However, the morphologies of formed apatite on substrate had different shapes such as coated, load-like, and linked. The morphology of apatite formed by biomimetic process would be affected by alkaline treatment, and substrate morphology and phase.
