Treatment with a hydrogen peroxide solution containing tantalum chloride followed by heating provided titanium with bioactivity where a titania gel layer derived on surface played the essential role. Effects of surface roughness and gel thickness on in vitro bioactivity were examined using the Kokubo solution. In vitro evaluation suggested enhanced interfacial bond strength between bone and Ti implants by obtaining thinner titania layer on rougher Ti surface.
