Titanium and titanium alloys were treated with H2O2 solutions containing various metal chlorides to improve their biocompatibility and allow them to bond to living bones. The apatite forming ability of the specimens were examined not only by an in vitro test in simulated body fluids but also in vivo. Thin film X ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopes equipped with an energy dispersive X ray spectrometer, and X ray photoelectron spectroscopy were used for surface analysis. In vivo tests confirm the bioactivity and osteoconduction for the treated Ti and alloy specimens.
