Magnesium (Mg) based alloys have been extensively considered for their use as biodegradable implant materials. However,
controlling their corrosion rate in the physiological environment of the human body is still a significant challenge. One of the
most effective approaches to address this challenge is to carefully select alloying compositions with enhanced corrosion resistance
when designing the Mg alloys. In this study ternary Mg-2 wt.% Zn-xCa (x=1, 2 and 3 wt.%) alloys as biodegradable magnesium alloys
were studied. The microstructures of the alloys were examined with optical microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray
diffraction (XRD) examinations as well as potentiodynamic polarization (PDP). Biocompatibility of mentioned alloys performed
with indirect MTT viability test according to ISO 10993-5:2009 standard. The microstructural examinations demonstrated that by
addition of 1, 2 and 3 wt.% Ca, the grain size reduced from 807 μm for Mg-2Zn to 86, 36 and 17 μm, respectively. Mg-2Zn has the
least corrosion potential and current density among all groups (Ecorr=-1.56 and icorr=152 μA cm2) due to well solubility of Zn; however,
among Mg alloys which contain Ca content, the best corrosion properties related to Mg-2Zn-1Ca alloy (Ecorr=-1.57 and icorr=195 μA/
cm2). The viability results indicate that Mg alloys extract have no significant toxicity effect on adipose derived mesenchymal stem
cells (ASCs) viability; however the viability increased in Mg-2Zn-1Ca group. Also, direct ASCs culturing on the surface of Mg alloys
represented good attachment and proliferation.
