Biocompatability of Precipitation-Enhancing Anodic Oxidation on Titanium as Implant Material
The composition of the electrolytes used in the process of anodic oxidation was modified to generate the novel anodic oxidation. The surface topography of the novel anodic oxidation showed that the pore/crater structures with the precipitants attached over the surface were observed in SEM. The physical properties and biocompatibility of the surface with the novel anodic oxidation were compared with that of anodic oxidation and machined surface of titanium. XRD, Bioactivity in a simulated body fluid, cell proliferation, and MTT test were performed to evaluate the differences among different surfaces.
