Abstract

The phase transition of calcium phosphate bioceramics electrodeposited on a Ti-6Al-4V at 10 V, 60 °C for various times has been investigated. At the beginning of electrodeposition, the {0 4 0} textured dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (CaHPO4·2H2O, DCPD) obtained is with a coral-like morphology. The major DCPD platelets occur within the first 30 min in deposition and the minor hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2, HAP) needles form increasingly with time. After 30 min, HAP steadily dominates and is identified as partially transformed from DCPD.
