The Manipulation of Properties of Ti Bioalloys at Micro and Nanoscale Using Etching Procedures
The paper is an electrochemical study regarding the influence of different acid etching conditions on the corrosion behaviour of a new Ti based bioalloy with Nb, Ta and Zr. Open circuit, potentiodynamic and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy were the methods performed in a simulated body fluid (SBF) and a stability mechanism was discussed in terms of equivalent circuits.
