Improving biomedical implants via deposition of functionalised surface coatings is a growing field of research. With respect to implant surfaces, infections present a major problem, and result mostly from the contamination of the surface by bacteria during surgery. UV irradiation induced photocatalysis on crystalline TiO2 implant surfaces may present a promising way to decontaminate surfaces while at the same time providing a bioactive surface for enhanced tissue integration.
