In this study, the surface of magnesium metal was electrochemically engineered for enhanced biocompatibility and controlled degradation in body fluid. Firstly, a plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) coating was formed on magnesium, followed by electrochemical deposition of calcium phosphate (CaP) using an unconventional electrolyte. Cytocompatibility tests using L929 cells revealed that the PEO-CaP coating significantly improved the biocompatibility of magnesium. In vitro electrochemical… CONTINUE READING
