Bioactive Porous Film Produced on Titanium Substrate by Micro-Arc Oxidation


Article Preview

Porous bioactive thin film on commercially pure titanium substrate was prepared by micro-arc oxidation (MAO) in electrolytic solution, which contained calcium acetate, β-glycerol phosphate disodium salt pentahydrate (β-GP) and lanthanum nitrate. The phases and microstructure of the bioactive films were examined by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer and electron probe microanalysis. The results showed that: (1) porous bioactive films with about 10μm were formed on titanium substrate by MAO; (2) phases of the thin films were hydroxyapatite, anatase and rutile; (3) elements of Ca, P, and Ti of films were identified by EDS.
