An anodic oxide film that formed on titanium with a mixture of beta-glycerophosphate sodium (beta-GP) and calcium acetate was investigated. The anodic oxide had interconnected pores (ca. 1-2 microm in diameter) and intermediate roughness (0.60-1.50 microm). In addition, it contained a mixture of amorphous, anatase, and rutile oxides. With an increase in the anodizing voltage and/or concentration of calcium incorporated into the oxide, the degree of oxide crystallinity increased. However, with… CONTINUE READING
