Modification of Passive Layer on TiNbZrTa Alloy in Simulated Body Fluid (SBF) at Various pH
The paper reports the behavior of TiNbZrTa in biological solution which simulates the body conditions (SBF-simulated body fluids) with different pH values. It has determinate the ion release quantities in time in SBF and the passive layer transformation on the implant surface. The used techniques were ICP-MS, FT-IR and contact angle measurement.
