Micro/nano-structured titanium surfaces modified by NaOH–CaCl2 heat water treatment:

Biomimetic calcium phosphate deposition and hMSCs behavior
represents the research concept of the joint project NTC and UKR:
Advanced porous biomaterials functionalized with stem cells for enhanced implant osseointegration.
In this study, NaOH–CaCl2 heat water treatment of titanium is revisited and used to modify porous laser micro/nanostructured oxidic and flat titanium surfaces which are characterized by XRD, electron microscopy, zeta potential and FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.
These titanium surfaces are also assessed for their ability to induce biomimetic Ca phosphate deposition from a simulated body fluid (SBF) and to grow human Mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs).
