A novel coating technique, referred to as Electrostatic Spray Deposition (ESD), was used to deposit calcium phosphate (CaP) coatings with a variety of chemical properties. The relationship between the composition of the precursor solutions and the crystal and molecular structure of the deposited coatings was investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS). It was shown that the relative Ca/P ratio in the precursor solution, the absolute precursor concentration, the acidity of the precursor solution and the type of Ca-precursor strongly influenced the chemical nature of the deposited CaP coatings. Various crystal phases and phase mixtures were obtained, such as carbonate apatite, beta-TCP, Mg-substituted whitlockite, monetite, beta/gamma-pyrophosphate, and calcite.It was shown that carbonate plays an essential role in the chemical mechanism of coating formation. Carbonate is formed due to a decomposition reaction of organic solvents. Depending on deposition conditions, carbonate anions (a) react with acidic phosphate groups, (b) are incorporated into apatitic calcium phosphate phases, and (c) react with excessive Ca(2+) cations in case of phosphate-deficient precursor solutions.
