Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the control of nanotube morphology using various factors for dental implant. TiO2 nanotube formation on biomedical grade α+β type Ti-6Al-4V alloy was investigated using anodization technique as a function of applied DC potential (10 V to 30 V and 30 V to 10 V) and anodization time for 60 min in 1 M H3PO4 with small additions of NaF (0.5 wt.%, and 0.8 wt.%). The microstructure and phase characteristics of surface were examined by optical microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. Also, in order to observe the biocompatibility and surface roughness, wettability and atomic force microscopy of alloy was measured.
