Biomimetic Coating on Titanium Metal and Its Excellent Cell Proliferation
Biomimetic coating on roughed titanium plates were prepared in this work by a cathode deposition method in calcium phosphate solution electrolyte. The coatings of plate-like apatite crystals were deposited on the titanium plates under a constant potential of 2.0V for 60 min at 37. The coating crystals were identified to be carbonate-containing apatite (bone-like apatite) by X-ray diffraction and scanning electronic microscopy. The cell proliferation and adhesion of L929 cells on the titanium metal plates with biomimetic coating and the titanium plates with roughed-only were tested. The results showed that biomimetic coating on titanium surface can enhance the materials bioactivity. The study indicated that cathode method is potential to prepare biomimetic coating on titanium implants with excellent bioactivity.
