Magnesium alloy is a potential biomedical implant because of its outstanding biodegradability and mechanical properties. But the poor corrosion resistance of AZ91 magnesium alloy in physiological solution limits its biomedical applications. In order to improve the corrosion resistance and biological performance of AZ91 magnesium alloy, we have fabricated a strontium-substituted porous hydroxyapatite (Sr-HAP)/zinc oxide (ZnO) duplex layer on AZ91 magnesium alloy by electrodeposition. The porous… CONTINUE READING
