Epub 2016 Sep 9.Magnesium (Mg) has recently received increasing attention due to its unique biological performance, including cytocompatibility, antibacterial and biodegradable properties. However, rapid corrosion in physiological environment and potential toxicity limits its clinical applications. To improve the corrosion resistance meanwhile not compromise other excellent performance, self-assembled colloidal particles were deposited onto magnesium surfaces in ethanol by a simple and effective electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method.
