The Effect of Initial pH on Morphology of Biomimetic Apatite Coating

Abstract:

Article Preview

Bone-like apatite coatings were prepared using a biomimetic method in a simulated body fluid (SBF). The effect of initial pH values on the surface morphology of biomimetic apatite coating was studied. The coatings were characterized using X-ray diffraction and environmental scanning electron microscope. It was revealed that the morphology of the biomimetic apatite coating could be tailored by manipulating the initial pH of the SBF solution.
