Abstract

Postoperative infection associated with medical implants is a devastating complication of orthopedic surgery. Considering the difficulties for the diagnosis and treatment of infection, coating the implant material with antibacterial substances is a promising protocol by which to avoid such an adverse reaction. Nanoparticles (NPs) constructed of anatase microspheres, one form of titanium dioxide (TiO2), with a high specific surface area are fabricated in this study in a facile one-step process using homogeneous precipitation at 90 °C under atmospheric pressure using titanium sulfate (Ti[SO4]2) and urea as the titanium source and precipitant, respectively. The molar ratio of silver (Ag) to TiO2 can be changed by varying the amount of silver nitrate (AgNO3). The high specific surface area of the TiO2 microspheres combined with Ag particles (Ag/TiO2) exhibit excellent antibacterial properties against both Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. In addition, the Ag/TiO2 material in this work possesses satisfactory biological performance on MC3T3-E1 cells. The high specific surface area of Ag/TiO2 together with good antibacterial properties and cytocompatibility provide promising applications in dentistry, orthopedics, and other fields of medicine that use biomedical devices.
