Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Besides general advantages of mesoporous materials, mesoporous titania coatings have a good biocompatibility and antibiotic property which are suitable to modify the surfaces of titanium (Ti) and its alloy.

OBJECTIVE:

To compare and analyze the morphology and structure of mesoporous titania coatings and conventional titania coatings in order to provide experimental and theoretical basis for the mesoporous titania coatings applying to the biomedical field.

METHODS:

The template method and non-template method were adopted to prepare the mesoporous titania coatings and conventional titania coatings on the surface of Ti-6Al-4V alloy. Then, the surface morphology observation and microstructure analysis were characterized by scanning electron microscope, fast specific surface area/porosity analyzer, and X-ray diffractometer.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

It is validated that the stable mesoporous titania coatings have been prepared on the surface of Ti-6Al-4V alloy and this film displayed the characteristics of mesoporous structure possessing large specific surface and pore volume. The average pore diameter, specific surface area and pore volume were calculated to be 6.668 0 nm, 124.190 6 m2/g and 0.256 470 cm3/g, respectively. Mesoporous titania coatings are suited to modify the surface of medical Ti and its alloys.
