Title: Study of TiO{sub 2} nanotubes as an implant application

Vertically aligned TiO{sub 2} nanotubes have become the primary candidates for implant materials that can provide direct control of cell behaviors. In this work, 65 nm inner diameters of TiO{sub 2} nanotubes were successfully prepared by anodization method. The interaction of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) in term of cell adhesion and cell morphology on bare titanium and TiO{sub 2} nanotubes is reported. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) analysis proved interaction of BMSC on TiO{sub 2} nanotubes structure was better than flat titanium (Ti) surface. Also, significant cell adhesion on TiO{sub 2} nanotubes surface during in vitro study revealed that BMSC prone to attach on TiO{sub 2} nanotubes. From the result, it can be conclude that TiO{sub 2} nanotubes are biocompatible to biological environment and become a new generation for advanced implant materials.
