UCM (Spain) – HZG (Germany)

The purpose of the stay is discussion of the results and planning of the future work on development of plasma electrolytic oxide (PEO) coatings for biodegradable Mg alloy implants under the umbrella of the NOVOMAG cooperation agreement between the UCM and HZG as part of the outreach activities within the MULTIMAT Challenge programme.

Scientific work/previsions

–  In vitro bioactivity and cytotoxicity study of the fluorine-containing PEO coatings on Mg0.8Ca alloy (a publication in preparation).

–  Study of the in vitro degradation rate of Mg0.8Ca alloy with fluorine-containing PEO coatings (a publication in preparation).
