Mg and its alloys are biodegradable, mechanically strong, and promising for an orthopedic implant and device applications. However, currently available degrade too rapidly to meet clinical needs. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of graphene oxide (GO) different percentages on corrosion properties of chitosan coatings onto three-dimensional magnesium Mg-2Zn scaffold to control degradation and promote bone ingrowth. The pulse electrodeposition technique was used for the production of nanocomposites coatings. The porous Mg–2Zn alloys were prepared using a powder metallurgy process. The coating microstructure and morphologies were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Zeta potential test was used for dispersion of GO in the Chitosan matrix. The potentiodynamic polarization test in simulated body fluid (SBF) indicated that the CS/GO coatings could provide effective protection of Mg–2Zn from corrosion.
