Effects of tantalum on the low-temperature deposition of bioactive crystalline titania films were studied. Crystalline titania films (anatase and rutile) with excellent in vitro bioactivity were deposited through interactions of titanium and hydrogen peroxide solutions containing Ta(V) ions under a low temperature of 80 °C. It was found that Ta(V) ions favor the low-temperature crystallization and the formation of rutile.
