Corrosion behavior of titanium silicide surface with hydrogen peroxide:
Formation of sub-μm TiOx - based spheres, nanocomposite TiOx / SiOx
phases, and mesoporous TiOx / SiOx network
represents the research concept of the joint project NTC and UKR:
Advanced porous biomaterials functionalized with stem cells for enhanced implant osseointegration.
- Corrosion of Ti5Si3 surface by HCl/H2O2
yields bioactive SiOx
and TiOx nanoforms.
- These species grow and separate into TiOx - based frameworks and
- A porous TiOx network boded to SiOx
species is a precursor to anatase.
- The one-step process is a promise for amendment of Ti5Si3 - coated titanium surfaces.
