Abstract

The interaction of cells on the surface of newly engineered nano-crystal films of stabilizer free cubic zirconia (with a hardness of 16 GPa), aluminum, titanium, tantalum, cerium oxides and silver was studied. The grain sizes of the nanocrystalline samples were determined by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and surface roughness measured by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Both chemistry and characteristics of nano-structured surface coatings influenced the adhesion, survival and growth of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
