CORROSION BEHAVIOUR OF 18 CARAT GOLD IN RINGER SOLUTIONS IN THE PRESENCE OF SODIUM CHLORIDE AND GLUCOSE

CORROSION BEHAVIOUR OF 18 CARAT GOLD IN RINGER SOLUTIONS IN THE PRESENCE OF SODIUM CHLORIDE AND GLUCOSE

Author: S. Agiladevi, S. Rajendran
Abstract

This work aims at studying the electrochemical behaviour of metals like 18 carat gold in presence of Simulated Ringer’s Solution and Lactated Ringer’s Solution in presence of 100 ppm of NaCl and also 100 ppm of glucose are used to simulate the body fluids. The behaviour of the metal was monitored by polarization study and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). All the experiments were carried out at a constant temperature of 37 °C. From these studies, it was concluded that the avoid of excess of NaCl and also glucose in both Ringer solutions in medicinal uses.
