Calcium phosphate formation on Ca-implanted titanium surfaces is studied. Experimental results show that octacalcium phosphate (OCP) is the more energetically favorable phase to precipitate on the positively charged Ca-implanted titanium surfaces compared to hydroxylapatite (HA), especially with the existence of a large amount of CO 3 ions. A solution-based… CONTINUE READING
