چکیده
This work aims to evaluate the corrosion behavior of pure copper from the microstructural viewpoint for a biomedical application, namely intrauterine devices. For this purpose, Tafel polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) techniques were used to evaluate the corrosion behavior of annealed pure copper (with the average grain size of 45±1 lm) and nano-grained microstructure in physiological electrolyte of Hank at 310 K (37 C). Pure copper in nanoscale grain size, typically an average of 90±5 nm, was successfully made by eight-cycle accumulative roll bonding process at room temperature. On the basis of Tafel polarization results, it was revealed that nano-grained sample had lower corrosion current density and more noble corrosion potential for prolonged exposure in Hanks physiological solution at 310 K (37 C). In addition, the EIS results showed that the nano-grained sample had more corrosion resistance compared to the coarse-grained one for long-time immersion.
