Abstract: The aim of the present research is to convert bioinert surface of NiTi to bioactive and biocompatible surface. In order to develop a bioactive and corrosion resistant film on NiTi, electrophoretic deposition process was done and TiO2 particles were deposited on the NiTi surface. Suspensions including TiO2 particles were prepared using a mixture of acetone and n-butanol (0%, 30%, 60%, 80% and 100% acetone) without using any dispersant. Sedimentation test was used to characterize the suspensions. SEM investigati… Show more

“…Unfortunately, the long-term use of NiTi alloy implants necessitates the improvement of their corrosion resistance and biocompatibility [5][6][7]. This goal might be achieved by modifying the alloy surface by protective coatings made of ceramics [8][9][10][11], polymers [12], metals [13], diamond-like carbon-DLC [14], or complex composite layers [15][16][17][18].…”

“…Between Ti alloys, Ni-Ti alloy with a nearly equal atomic ratio of Ni and Ti has been increasingly used in medical and dental applications due to its high corrosion resistance and good biocompatibility [6][7][8]. Unfortunately, titanium and its alloys are bioinert and easily encapsulated after implanting into the living body by fibrous tissue that isolates them from the surrounding bone [9][10][11]. Furthermore, the high Ni content in the Ni-Ti alloy is one of the great concerns with regards to its biocompatibility.…”
