Changes in the composition of surface oxide film on titanium specimens in the presence of amino acids, serum proteins, and cells were characterized using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The surface oxide film on titanium formed in the air is so protective that the further oxidation of titanium is prevented in various circumstances. During immersion of the… CONTINUE READING
