The aim of this study is surface modification of Ni-free type Ti based metallic glass (Ti42Hf11Cu11Pd36 at.%) for increasing calcification by electrochemical treatment. Ni-free type Ti based metallic glass has excellent mechanical and chemical properties which are comparable with those of Ti based alloys. Surface of Ti based metallic glasses was prepared as follows; one is anodically-oxidized porous layer by potentiostatic control in 5 M NaOH solution at 25 degrees C for 2 h, and the other is simple hydrothermal treated poros layer by immersion in 5 M NaOH solution at 60 degrees C for 24 h. The synthesized surface structures were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) identification, SEM observation, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) analysis and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) analysis. These surfaces on the modified specimens have nano-mesh laminated structures and are consist of sodium titanate and titanium oxide. In addition, the above two types surfaces with nano-mesh laminated layer were immersed in Hank's balance salt solution (HBSS) at 37 degrees C for 21 days for evaluation of calcification. The apatite-forming ability on these surfaces is observed by SEM observation and EDS analysis. As stated above surface modifications are also discussed about calcification effect by different surface treatment and different formability of porosity in this study.
