Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) with diameters ranging from 4 to 19 nm were in situ fabricated and immobilized on titanium by using a plasma immersion ion implantation process. The particles have a population-dependent capability in activating the integrin α5 orchestrated MAPK/ERK signal cascade of osteoblast differentiation in rat bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs), and promoting osteointegration of titanium.

It demonstrated that titanium armed with a nano-thick calcium oxide layer was effective on averting methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in rabbits. This study demonstrated for the first time that calcium, as one of the major elements in a human body, could be engineered to avert MRSA infections, which is promising as a safe precaution of disinfection for implantable biomedical devices.

Silver nanoparticles with a similar mean particle diameter (∼5.0nm) but distinguished dispersion densities were in situ fabricated and immobilized onplasma-sprayed titanium oxide coatings by a silver plasma immersion ion implantation process. Experiments and theoretical predictions demonstrated that the efficacy of these Ag NPs against bacteria relies on their electron storage capability, which is the interparticle distance associated in the dark, and it is inversely dose-dependent.

Size tunable silver nanoparticles are synthesized and incorporated into titanium oxide coatings (TOCs) by manipulating the atomic-scale heating effect of silver plasma immersion ion implantation (Ag PIII). The resulting Ag NPs/TOC composite coatings possess electron storage capability that gives rise to both controlled antibacterial activity and excellent compatibility with mammalian cells.

Titanium embedded with silver nanoparticles using a single step silver plasma immersion ion implantation demonstrate micro-galvanic effects that give rise to both controlled antibacterial activity and excellent compatibility with osteoblasts.
