Studying the effect of ZrO2 and Sintering Temperature on the Corrosion Behavior and Biocompatibility of Ti-12Mo Alloy for Dental Applications

Reinforcing pure titanium with 12 percent molybdenum and various weight percentages of zirconia increased the microstructure, mechanical properties, corrosion behaviour, and biocompatibility. To obtain a homogeneous distribution of Mo and ZrO2 in the titanium matrix, powder metallurgy is used. For
