Apatite Patterning by Using Electrophoretic Deposition
Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) was applied to forming apatite pattern. A pattern of holes was formed on a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) board and a porous PTFE film was superposed on the PTFE board. Wollastonite particles were deposited on the PTFE film by EPD and wollastonite pattern was obtained. Then apatite was induced at the wollastonite deposited region by soaking in a simulated body fluid.
