In this work, strategies for the formation of duplex coatings with enhanced bioactivity, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance have been focused. TiO 2 arrays were fabricated on Ti alloy were carried out in a single step using suitable electrolyte by anodization method. Here, we have synthesized a novel bioactive material, minerals incorporated Hydroxyapatite (La/Tb-HAP)-chitosan-casein duplex coatings on anodized Ti via electrodeposition method. The fabricated novel composite coatings

The corrosion resistance of the as-developed duplex coatings was studied by electrochemical techniques using Ringers solution as the electrolyte. In addition, the antibacterial activity, cell viability, live and dead staining were executed to substantiate the biocompatibility of TNT/CS-CA@M-HAP duplex coatings. From the overall summary of this work, it is proved that the resultant CS-CA@M-HAP coatings on TNT exhibit excellent bioactivity and improved corrosion resistance over pure Ti and serve as a potential candidate for orthopedic applications.
