Abstract
Magnesium is one of the most active metals and is prone to corrosion. In construction, automotive and aerospace industries this is seen as a detrimental property. However, coupling corrosion with magnesiums’s favourable strength, weight and density a new type of temporary implants are being developed to rehabilitate damaged bone, without the need for surgery to remove the implant. Taking this concept further, this thesis uses the corrosion mechanism to deliver drugs from the implant as it is degrading.
