Anodic oxidation is an electrochemical method that deposits ceramic coatings on the metal substrates to improve the bioactivity of implant. In this study, a novel approach was proposed to precipitate hydroxyapatite (HAP) directly on the surface of pure titanium through anodic oxidation approach. As part of the proposed approach, a new formulation of electrolyte was introduced, which consists of 0.04 M β-glycerophosphate (β-GP), 0.4 M calcium acetate (CA) and 1.0 M sulphuric acid (H2SO4). The approach herein only requires a single step to precipitate the HAP directly on the surface of titanium through anodisation process within the electrolyte. High purity titanium foils were anodised in 0.04 M β-GP + 0.4 M CA + 1.0 M H2SO4 at 350 V and 70 mA.cm-2 for 10 minutes at varying fractions of mixture volumes of H2SO4 (0-100 vol %). The surface properties of anodised titanium were characterised by using several methods, namely the field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), glancing angle X-ray diffractometer (GAXRD) and goniometer. The outcome of the characterisation showed that the needle-like HAP was precipitated on the titanium, whereby anodising in electrolyte contains 12.5 vol % H2SO4. Combinations of anatase, rutile, titanium, tricalcium phosphate (Ca3O8P2) and calcium diphosphate (Ca2O7P2) elements were detected within the anodised titanium, whereby the anodising in electrolyte contains 50 vol % H2SO4
