One of the most important feature of material, which can replace or join bone, is bioactivity which consist in the formation of the bonelike apatite layer on its surface in body environment, or also in simulated body fluid (SBF). It is known that some sol-gel coatings like Si-, Nb-, Zr-, Ti- oxides show this property, but the nature of this effect is not quite clear yet.
