    The stainless-steel alloys; particularly 316L; are the major metallic alloys to be used in biomedicine due to their superior characteristics. Surface engineering is the process equipped successfully with stainless steel to be used as a functional biomaterial. The purpose of this study is to establish the better parameters (concentration, voltage and time) with electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method of coating to form a layer of silver oxide nanoparticles, to get benefit of its antimicrobial effect in biomedicine; with chitosan as a binder based on microstructure and adhesion of the coated layer; in addition to XRD analysis to evaluate the phases before and after coating. The materials used were stainless steel 316L as a substrate, silver oxide nanoparticles, chitosan and citric acid and ethanol alcohol as a solvent. The EPD coating method was performed using different parameters (con.. Read More»
