The Electrochemical Behavior of Titanium Improved by Nanotubular Oxide Formed by Anodization for Biomaterial Applications:  A Review

A. A. Al-Swayih



Titanium oxide nanotube is gaining prominence in many applications like solar energy, sensors, catalyst and biomaterials. In this paper, we briefly review the electrochemical behavior of titanium oxide nanotube prepared by anodization in simulated body fluids. The electrochemical behavior of TiO2 nanotube depends on its morphology and surface properties. When titanium oxide nanotube formed byanodization, these surface properties are depending strongly on two factors, the parameters of anodization process and the conditions of employed electrolyte. These factors must be chosen in correct manner to optimized titanium oxide nanotube with desired properties for specific application.
