The formation of hydroxyapatite on and inside of cotton fibrils with an oxysulfate solution was investigated. A titania layer consisting of rutile was observed to be deposited on cotton fibrils after treating in above solution. It was observed that bonelike apatite was successfully formed on entirety of cotton fibrils in SBF at 36.5°C within only 2d. It was found that rutile induces apatite deposition in SBF at 36.5 °C just as well as anatase.
