Epub 2016 Nov 10.The aim of this study was to cover the surfaces of zirconium (Zr) with an antimicrobial layer for biomedical applications. For this purpose, the micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process was employed in a sodium silicate and sodium hydroxide containing base electrolyte with and without addition of silver acetate (AgC2H3O2). In general, synthesized MAO layers were composed of zirconium oxide (ZrO2) and zirc ... Read More
