In this chapter the main issues related to surface modifications of titanium and titanium alloys in biomedical applications are discussed. Firstly the basic chemico-physical principles of electrochemical processes are considered, followed by a critical review of important results reported in this field. Finally, the latest advances in complex organic/ inorganic surface preparation, based on electrochemical surface immobilisation of biomolecules, are presented.

Abstract

In this chapter the main issues related to surface modifications of titanium and titanium alloys in biomedical applications are discussed. Firstly the basic chemico-physical principles of electrochemical processes are considered, followed by a critical review of important results reported in this field. Finally, the latest advances in complex organic/ inorganic surface preparation, based on electrochemical surface immobilisation of biomolecules, are presented.
