Selective formation of ordered arrays of octacalcium phosphate ribbons on TiO(2) nanotube surface by template-assisted electrodeposition.

Using a patterned superhydrophobicity/superhydrophilicity template, micropatterned octacalcium phosphate (OCP) has been successfully fabricated on TiO(2) nanotube array surface. The resultant OCP micropattern has been characterized with scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and electron probe microanalyzer. It is shown that the… CONTINUE READING
