Besides, different tellurium nanostructures -both nanoparticles and nanowires- were used for the coating of these metallic surfaces, predicting different enhancements in the biocompatibility of the structures. Besides, anticancer studies were performed.
Therefore, a new nanotellurium-based functionalization of titanium metallic surfaces is presented with an enhancement of the biomedical applications of these coatings, that can be used in multiple applications.
