Investigation of the dissolution of the bioceramic hydroxyapatite in the presence of titanium ions using ToF-SIMS and XPS.

Abstract

Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analyses have been used to investigate the dissolution of hydroxyapatite in the presence of titanium chloride suggesting the substitution of titanium ions for calcium in the hydroxyapatite structure. The surface analytical data suggest that titanium was… (More)
