Biodegradable and bioactive β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) coatings were prepared on magnesium (Mg) in order to improve its biocompatibility by a chemical method. The tensile bonding strength of β-TCP coating and Mg substrate was measured by the standard adhesion test (ISO 13779-4). And the cytocompatibility of β-TCP coated Mg was studied by using human osteoblast-like MG63 cells. It was found that the MG63 cells could grow well on the surface of β-TCP coated Mg and the cell viability on β-TCP… CONTINUE READING
