Cell instructive material made from titanium oxide nanotubes

By Martin Grolms / July 23, 2013

[Editor’s note: this article originally appeared in Wiley Materials Views on July 3.] Highly ordered, vertically oriented titanium oxide nanotube arrays obtained by titanium anodization have attracted huge attention because of their outstanding material properties: great biocompatibility and cell growth enhancement, excellent optical and electrical characteristics, and unique nanotubular structures with tunable dimensions. By adjusting the anodization…
