Hanks solution

Hanks so·lu·tion

(hanks),
a salt solution usually used in combination with naturally occurring body substances (for example, blood serum, tissue extracts) and/or more complex chemically defined nutritive solutions for culturing animal cells; two variations contain CaCl2, MgSO4·7H2O, KCl, KH2PO4, NaHCO3, NaCl, Na2HPO4·2H2O, and d-glucose.

For this reason studies on the corrosion and passivity of implants that simulate fluids from the human body: Ringer solution [4], phosphate saline buffered solution [5], artificial saliva [6] and Hanks solution [7].
Electrochemical potentiodynamic polarisation studies were carried out for titanium alloys in the Hanks solution. All the potential measurements were made with reference to a saturated calomel electrode (SCE).
The corrosion potential ([E.sub.corr]), variation with time of immersion in Ti-5Al-2Nb-1Ta alloy in Hanks solution for a period of 0 hr and 360 hrs are shown in the Fig.1.
The [I.sub.corr] values were 4.85 x [10.sup.-7] A [cm.sup.-2] and 2.39 x [10.sup.-8] A [cm.sup.-2] for 0 hr and 360 hrs in Hanks solution respectively.
[12] with Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy, in Hanks solution, two relaxation time constants were clearly indicated by two peaks on phase angle plots.
The electrochemical behavior of several Ti-based alloys (CP Titanium, Ti-15Al, Ti-5Al2.5Fe, Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-6Al-4Fe, Ti-6Al-4Nb, Ti-13.4Al-29Nb, Ti-13Nb-13Zr) and 316L stainless steel was investigated in simulated body fluid solution (Hanks solution) at 37[degrees]C.
