Electrochemical surface modifications of titanium and titanium alloys for biomedical applications

L. De Nardo, L. Altomare, B. Del Curto, A. Cigada and L. Draghi,     Politecnico di Milano, Italy

Abstract:

In this chapter the main issues related to surface modifications of titanium and titanium alloys in biomedical applications are discussed. Firstly the basic chemico-physical principles of electrochemical processes are considered, followed by a critical review of important results reported in this field. Finally, the latest advances in complex organic/inorganic surface preparation, based on electrochemical surface immobilisation of biomolecules, are presented.
