Corrosion Behavior of Magnesium Alloys in Biomedical Environments

Abstract:

Article Preview

High rates of degradation in corrosive media represent the Achilles heel of Mg alloys, which hinders their applications in various areas, particularly in prosthetics. We present an investigation of the degradation behavior of magnesium alloy AZ91D and AM50 in different solutions that simulates bodily fluids. The degradation rate is shown to be significantly reduced by different Al contents in the alloy. Furthermore, the corrosive solutions containing protein influenced on the oxidation behavior of the studied alloys
