Nowadays, bioactive coatings or modifications on titanium surface have been tested in vitro and in vivo. In this study, two types of calcium phosphate coatings were produced by a chemical deposition method and their bioactivity assay in cell culture medium were investigated. The calcium phosphate coatings were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy with field emission gun (FEG-SEM) analyses. Titanium substrate was successfully coated with brushite using chemical deposition method and, after a second step of conversion, the hydroxyapatite coating was obtained. The hydroxyapatite coating showed a bioactivity property after 14 days' incubation in McCoy medium culture.
