Abstract

The corrosion resistance of 18 K gold in artificial saliva, in the absence and presence of Gemer-2 Tablet (orally taken by type 2 Diabetes) has been evaluated by polarization study and AC impedance spectra. Polarisation study reveals that in the presence of Gemer-2, LPR value increases and corrosion current decreases. That is in presence of Gemer-2, the corrosion resistance of 18K Gold in artificial saliva increases. AC impedance study reveals that in the presence of Gemer-2, Rt value increases and Cdl decreases. That is in the presence of Gemer-2 the corrosion resistance of 18 K Gold in AS increases. It is concluded that people clipped with orthodontic wire made of 18K Gold need not hesitate to take Gemer-2 orally.
