The effect of nitrogen-ion implantation on the corrosion resistance of titanium in comparison with oxygen- and argon-ion implantations
T. Sundararajan, Zdravko Praunseis, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Commercially pure (CP) titanium was surface modified with nitrogen-, argon- and oxygen-ion implantations in order to investigate the material's corrosion resistance in a simulated body fluid. Five doses were chosen for the ions, ranging from 5.1015 cm-2 to 2.5-1017 cm-2. In-vitro open-cyclic potential-timemeasurements and cyclic polarization studies were carried out to evaluate the corrosion resistance of the modified surface in comparison to an unmodified surface. Specimens implanted at 4.1016 cm-2 and 7.1016 cm-2 showed the optimum corrosion resistance, higher doses showed a detrimental effect on the corrosion resistance. Argon- and oxygen-ion implantation at these doses did not show any improved corrosion resistance, indicating the beneficial role of nitrogen on the corrosion resistance of titanium in the simulated body-fluid environment. Grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD) was employed on the implanted specimens to determine the phases formed with the increasing doses. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) studies on the passive film of the implanted samples and on the unimplanted samples were analyzed in order to understand the role of nitrogen in improving the corrosion resistance. The results of the present investigation indicated that nitrogen-ion implantation can be used as a viable method for improving the corrosion resistance of titanium. The nature of the surface and the reason for the variation and the improvement in the corrosion resistance are discussed in detail.

Biomaterials and host versus graft response
Tomaž Velnar, Gorazd Bunc, Robert Klobucar, Lidija Gradišnik, 2016, review article

Abstract: Biomaterials and biotechnology are increasing becoming an important area in modern medicine. The main aim in this area is the development of materials, which are biocompatible to normal tissue. Tissue-implant interactions with molecular, biological and cellular characteristics at the implant-tissue interface are important for the use and development of implants. Implantation may cause an inflammatory and immune response in tissue, foreign body reaction, systemic toxicity and imminent infection. Tissue-implant interactions determine the implant life-period. The aims of the study are to consider the biological response to implants. Biomaterials and host reactions to implants and their mechanisms are also briefly discussed.
