The Manipulation of Properties of Ti Bioalloys at Micro and Nanoscale Using Etching Procedures

Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
