Preparation and properties of high purity Mg-Y biomaterials.


An effective zone solidification method has been found to prepare high purity Mg-Y biomaterials. The corrosion and mechanical properties of the purified middle region are improved remarkably compared with common casting method. The average gain size and secondary dendrite space decrease from the top layer to the bottom layer of the ingot. The oxides… (More)
