The Construction and Characterization of Nano-FHA Bioceramic Coating on Titanium Surface


Article Preview

This research was aimed at the construction and characterization of nano-FHA bioceramic coating on titanium surface. Nano-FHA coating was constructed on the surface of commercially pure titanium by sol-gel route. X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electromicroscope (SEM) and dissolution test was employed to characterize the obtained coating. In vitro cellular responses of osteoblasts to the coating were also evaluated by MTT assay, ALP assay and SEM observation. Conventional HA coatings and commercially pure titanium (cpTi) were taken as control. Results show the nano-FHA bioceramic coating has good crystallization and homogeneous, nano-scale surface morphology. The dissolution rate of the coating is favorable. The in vitro osteoblasts culture exhibits satisfactory bioactivity.
