Make no bones about it: To achieve porous bioactive implant materials for load-bearing bone, a new strategy towards biomimetic calcium phosphate coatings has been investigated. The surface of the porous silicon carbide is modified with a covalently bound monolayer exposing carboxylic acid groups that promote the selective deposition of a very well-defined fully crystalline layer of oriented mixed octacalcium phosphate/hydroxyapatite crystals on substrates with complex geometry (see figure).
