  • Covers best-practice values for experiments on Magnesium biomaterials
  • Provides the critical background needed for a strong understanding of Bio-Magnesium
  • Serves as an inclusive resource for Magnesium biocorrosion performance, providing the most detailed descriptions of current tests available
  • Presents various corrosion techniques that have been developed over years of experience, investigation, mistakes and successes, providing an initial standard for all future investigations into the biodegradable qualities of Mg

Magnesium Biomaterials provides a succinct up-to-date overview of Magnesium biomaterial development, critically examines the types of in vitro experiments that may be performed, and investigates the numerous variables that affect Magnesium biodegradation when undertaking these experiments. This work also discusses the direction in which current Magnesium biomaterial development is heading and the necessary steps for future development of this field. Information is drawn from numerous multi-disciplinary sources to provide a coherent and critical overview. Magnesium Biomaterials is ideal for researchers in the area of bio-Mg, companies interested in exploring their own alloys, and for researchers working with other biodegradable materials who are seeking a cross-platform understanding of material performance.
