Abstract

Research attempts were directed at establishing suitable anodizing conditions to create microporous (0.1 μm) oxides, characterize the structure and chemistry of the coatings and evaluate their performance with respect to antibiotic attachment and retainment. The authors have established suitable conditions for the formation of microporous oxide coatings on Ti and Ti-6Al-4V materials. These microporous oxide coatings are a definite improvement over macroporous oxide coatings for the purpose of antibiotic attachment and retainment.
