Investigation of the electrochemical stability of implants

  • Description of the research topic

    Recent progress made in biomaterials and their clinical applications is well known. In the last decades, great advances have been made in the field of biomaterials, including e.g. ceramics, polymers, composites, metals and metal alloys. A variety of bioimplants are currently used in either one of the aforesaid forms. Failures of implants are usually classified as either mechanical, electrochemical, biological or combinations of these. Mechanical failure mechanisms include micromotions, overload, fatigue and wear. Electrochemical failures are mainly related to different forms of corrosion. The main objective of the research is to study the corrosion properties of various materials used in implants by combined electrochemical and surface analysis methods using samples prepared for implantation or removed from tissues.
