Electrophoretically Deposited Strontium Fluoride Nanoparticle/Polymer Coatings for Medical Implants

Abstract: 

The present disclosure provides for co-electrophoretic deposition (co-EPD) of organo-functionalized strontium fluoride nanoparticles (SrF.sub.2) with a hydrophobic polymer in the presence of non-aqueous aprotic solvents. The co-EPD procedure can be employed to form a coating or self-supporting film for application to a metal implant.
