Abstract:
In this work, we concentrated our attention to develop various methods for surface construction of of calcium phosphate (CaP) and their composite coatings, including octacalcium phosphate (OCP), hydroxyapatite (HAp), micropatterned titanium surface by using electrochemical techniques. It is demonstrated that the nano-micro structrured CaP composite coatings exhibit a preferable biocompatibility, because they are similar to the natural bone in both chemical composition and micro structure on surface.
