Open-cell titanium(Ti) foams with 75.5% porosity were manufactured by powder metallurgy route using acicular carbamide particles as space holder. The TG and DSC curves of carbamide were measured to optimize the heat treatment during carbamide removal. X-ray diffraction studies of carbamide before and after removed to ensure that the foams produced featured no contamination. The compressive strength and Young’s modulus of Ti foams were 11.1 MPa and 0.32 GPa, respectively. This kind of open-cell the foam is expected to be a potential substitute biomaterial for cancellous bone, due to its mechanical properties well match that of cancellous bone.
