Biomimetic Calcium-Phosphate (Ca-P) coatings were applied by using 5 times concentrated Simulated Body Fluid (SBF x 5) using Carbon Dioxide gas. This process allows the deposition of a uniform Ca-P coating within 24 h. A previous study of our process emphasized the importance of hydrogenocarbonate ions (HCO-3), a crystal growth inhibitor. The aim of the… CONTINUE READING
