In vitro degradation behaviour of β phase (Mg17Al12), commonly present in AZ series magnesium alloys, was studied using electrochemical techniques in simulated body fluid. The experimental results suggested that the degradation rate of β phase was significantly lower than that of pure magnesium. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis of the polarized β phase revealed localized corrosion.
