Biomaterials Corrosion

The biomaterial research work carried by using metal implants and biocompatible coating on the surface of metal implant using various electrochemical technique. The research work mainly focused on the two types of orthopaedic implants (i) Permanent Implant (Zirconium, Titanium and 316L SS) and (ii) Temporary Implant (Magnesium and its alloys). The surface modification improves the biocompatibility of the metallic implant and increase the corrosion resistance in the body fluid environment. Bio responsive materials like polymer, ceramic and micro nutrients essentials compounds increase the cellular response and osteointegration process.
