The paper describes the effect of growth TiO2 nanotubes on titanium surfaces by anodic oxidation forenvironmental and medical applications. The importance of the metallurgical state of TiAl6V alloy on the growing of TiO2 nanotubes by anodization will be highlighted. Starting from the possibility of obtaining the TiO2 nanotubes, the paper presents results on TiO2 nanotubes grown by electrochemical anodization method, using a solution containing HF 0,4% and having as electrodes, graphiteas cathode and titanium alloy specimens obtained by two technologies: by cold plastic deformation as well as by additive manufacturing process SLS, as anode. So, the nanotubes were produced by anodization and analysed by scanning electron microscopy. The aim of this paper is to compare the electrochemical formation of TiO2 on the surface of both specimens knowing that the titanium alloys and its oxides are used in many biomedicaland environmental applications, thus providing the importance of nanotubes and the fact that their properties open doors in these fields.
