Paper Title:
Corrosion Characterization of Titanium Alloys by Electrochemical Techniques in Artificial Saliva and SBF Solution
  Abstract

The commercially pure titanium (cp Ti) biocompatibility is due to its chemical stability in organism because of the presence of a fine film and impermeable of titanium oxide over the metal surface that confirms its corrosion resistance, changing this material's surface has been the direction of many research groups, these modifications may have influence in corrosion resistance. In this work was investigated the electrochemical behavior of cp Ti, without and with coating of the hydroxyapatite, commonly used implant materials, in artificial saliva and simulated body fluid (SBF) solution at 25oC and pH=7.4. The potentiodynamic polarization curves, shows that there is a passive region with low current’ density, indicating that in the investigated conditions the formation of a surface protective film occurs. In the studied conditions it was observed that hydroxyapatite layer has influence on corrosion resistance properties.
