Abstract

Dynamic electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (dynamic EIS) has the capacity to track changes on surfaces in a changing corrosive system, an advantage it holds over classical EIS. We used the dynamic EIS approach to provide insight into the corrosion behavior of the AZ91D Mg alloy in simulated body fluid for 30 h at 25 °C. The results reveal that the impedance response of the alloy is influenced by the immersion time. Between 0 and 7 h, impedance with three time constants was obtained, whereas two-Time-constant impedance spectra were obtained between 8 and 30 h of immersion. The results confirm the breakdown of the corrosion product at longer immersion times.
