CORROSION RESISTANCE OF 18 CARAT GOLD IN
ARTIFICIAL SALIVA IN PRESENCE OF D-GLUCOSE
R. Saranya, Susai Rajendran, A. Krishnaveni, J. Jayasundari.
Corrosion resistance of two metals namely 18 carat gold and mild steel (MS) has been evaluated in artificial saliva in the presence of Dglucose. Potential dynamic polarization study has been used to investigate the corrosion behaviour of two metals. The order of corrosion
resistance of metals in artificial saliva in the presence of D-glucose is 18 carat gold > MS. The decrease order of corrosion resistance of
metals in artificial saliva only is: 18 carat gold>mild steel
Key words: corrosion of metals, artificial saliva (AS), D-glucose, 18 carat gold and mild steel (MS)
