Influence of Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) on the Tribocorrosion Behaviour of a Low Carbon CoCrMo Alloy in Simulated Body Fluids

Tribocorrosion, as the interaction between mechanical wear and electrochemical corrosion, has been found to be the main problem causing the failure and limiting the lifetime of metal-on-metal artificial hip joints. Better understanding of the tribocorrosion mechanisms of CoCrMo alloys is needed in o...
