Effect of Concentrated Sulfuric Acid-Etching on Apatite-Forming Ability of Alkaline-Treated Titanium

Abstract:

Article Preview

Concentrated H2SO4 acid was applied to pretreatment for the alkaline treatment of commercially pure titanium, and the effect of acid-etching on apatite-forming ability of alkaline-treated titanium in a simulated body fluid (SBF) was investigated. Characterization analysis revealed that the concentrated H2SO4 etching formed much amount of sodium titanate, resulting a large amount of formation of apatite in SBF. It is confirmed that the etching in concentrated H2SO4 enhance apatite-forming ability of alkaline-treated titanium.
