This study presents the results from immersion tests of biodegradable Mg and Fe in simulated body fluid buffered with gaseous CO2. The particular advantage of controlling the pH value by means of CO2 is that the physiological conditions are better reproduced; hence the in vitro experiments are closer to the in vivo situation.
