Abstract: Natural hydroxyapatite has been electrophoretically deposited on medical grade 316L stainless steel. Stable suspensions were prepared by mixing 40 g/L milled natural hydroxyapatite powder in isopropyl alcohol and stabilized by polyethylenimine as dispersing agent and binder. The stability of suspensions was investigated by measuring zeta potential. It was found here that the suspension which was stabilized with 4 g/L polyethylenimine revealed a high value of zeta potential and stability. Deposition was achieve…
