Insight into Designing Biocompatible Magnesium Alloys and Composites
This book critically summarizes the effects of various suitable alloying elements and particulate reinforcements on mechanical and degradation properties of pure Mg and Mg alloys targeting biomedical applications. The suitability of alloying elements and particulate reinforcements are discussed based on their levels of toxic effects on human body. First attempt is made to study and discuss on the various available synthesizing techniques for fabrication of both impermeable and porous Mg materials. Further, more emphasis on development of new magnesium matrix nanocomposites (MMNC) is made owing to the similarities between natural bone and MMNCs as bio-“nanocomposite”. The information on synthesis, toxicity of alloying elements and reinforcements and their effects on mechanical and degradation properties of pure Mg will enable the researchers to effectively design Mg alloys and composites targeting biomedical applications.
Reviews exhaustively the key recent research into design and alloying elements for Mg alloys, composites and porous materials for biomedical applicationsMaximizes reader insights into the development of new magnesium matrix nanocomposites (MMNC), a material that display similar properties to the natural bone, which is also a nanocomposite materialWritten by leading experts in the field
