Effective UV/Ozone irradiation method for decontamination of hydroxyapatite surfaces

The purpose of this study was to establish whether UV/ozone (O3) irradiation method can effectively decontaminate hydroxyapatite surfaces, including those modified by the treatment with 30% phosphoric acid solution through morphological and chemical surface analyses (surface roughness, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and wettability), and to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
