Titanium and its alloys are widely used materials in engineering and dental/medical applications. The target of related researches is to eliminate the risk of implant rejection of the human body with enhancing Ti6Al4V biocompatibility. Even though coating Ti6Al4V with hydroxyapatite do not provide the desired amount of biocompatibility, the usage of hydroxyapatite (which has very similar structure to bone) coated Ti6Al4V is still one of the most accepted application. In order to achieve better hydroxyapatite coating, the surface will be modified with sulphuric acid that leads to increase surface porosity. In this study, Ti6Al4V plates were etched with sulfuric acid and then hydroxyapatite was coated onto acid etched porous Ti6Al4V surface. Obtained coated and pre-treated plates were evaluated in terms of their structural properties by the use of SEM, EDS, ICP, XRD, FTIR, Raman analysis.
