Fabrication of Microporous Apatite Coating on Titanium by a Novel Chemical Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

A microporous apatite coating was fabricated by a heat-oxidation and chemical routine. The morphology, composition and structure were characterized by scanning electron microscopy with X-ray energy dispersion spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The components of the coating were predominantly apatite, next tri-calcium phosphate and octa-calcium phosphate. The pore size ranged from 1µm to5µm. The thickness of the coating was about 6µm ~ 10µm. The microporous coating was Ca-deficient carbonate apatite.
