Formation of Nano-Phase Hydroxyapatite Film on TiO2 Nano-Network
Abstract:Nano- and micro-phase HA film formed on TiO2 nano-network surface by simple electrochemical treatment. The range of lateral pore size of the network specimen was about 10–120 nm on Ti surface by anodized in 5 M NaOH solution at 0.3 A for 10 min. Nano-network TiO2 surface were formed by this anodization step which acted as templates and anchorage for growth of the HA during subsequent pulsed electrochemical deposition process at 85 °C. The phase and morphologies of deposits HA were influenced by the electrolyte concentration. The nano needle-like precipitates formed under low SBF concentration were identified to be HA crystals orientated parallel to the c-axis direction. Increasing electrolyte concentration, needle-like deposits transferred to the plate-like and micro plate like precipitates in the case of high SBF concentration.
