Synthesis of Silver Incorporated Hydroxyapatite under Magnetic Field

Abstract:

Article Preview

Cathodic deposition of nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite coatings on titanium surface was carried out under different magnetic field conditions. The electrolyte was prepared to maintain physiological pH and was agitated using a magnetic stirrer throughout the time of electrolysis. Silver was incorporated in the current coating because of its antibactericidal and cytotoxic nature. It was found that the silver concentration in HA coated titanium without magnetic field was higher than the coating formed under magnetic fields. This may be attributed to the diamagnetic nature of silver in different magnetic field conditions.
