Novel Hydroxyapatite Coating on Alumina by Electrospraying

Abstract:

Article Preview

Electrospraying of nano-sized hydroxyapatite (HA) has been used as a technique to modify the surface of alumina in order to achieve the goal of improving bone integration. A porous HA coating on alumina was produced by heat treating electrsprayed HA. Preliminary in vitro studies shown that this porous HA coating provided a favourable surface for attachment and growth of HOB cells. The results indicate that electrospraying is a very promising technique to create thin HA coatings on a range of biomedical implants to improve interfacial bonding with the host tissue.
