Abstract Scope Both the prevention of post-operation infections and the osseointegration of implants into the surrounding bone is highly desirable as a way to increase implant life spans. Chitosan, which comes from shrimp shells, is a biopolymer that has both antibacterial and bioactivity behavior. To increase the bond strength of chitosan to titanium, aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) has been deposited using various solvents, including toluene, acetone, ethanol, and heptane. The highest adhesion strength was shown to be due to toluene, with heptane producing slightly lower results. However, toluene is also carcinogenic, so any replacement solvent must produce similar adhesion strengths with lower health risks. The research presented continues the examination of adhesion strengths of these chitosan coatings based on solvent used for deposition, by comparing the exposure to simulated body fluid over an extended period of time. To determine potential health risks, the concentration of any residual solvent will also be assessed.
