The aim of this study was to compare the Ti6Al7Nb, Ti6Al2Nb1Ta1Nb, Ti5Al2.5Fe, and Ti6Al4V alloys with the commercial titanium, regarding the corrosion resistance in artificial saliva. In the electrochemical estimations the polarization data are converted into instantaneous corrosion rate values (I-corr). The passivation properties were comparable for the four alloys. The EIS spectra are best fitted using an equivalent circuit (EC), which corresponds to the model of a two-layer structure for the passive film. High impedance values (in the order of 10(6) Omega cm(2)) were obtained from medium to low frequencies for all materials suggesting high corrosion resistance in artificial saliva.The electrochemical and corrosion behavior of Ti6Al4V is not affected on substituting vanadium with niobium, iron, molybdenum, and tantalum.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48947||ISSN:||0947-5117||DOI:||10.1002/maco.200704065||Source:||Materials and Corrosion[ISSN 0947-5117],v. 58, p. 848-856|
