The current research involves metal-based alloys as a suitable material of hip joint replacements/prostheses. The study is to understand how the interactions/kinetics of the biological substances with the CoCrMo alloys surface under the tribology and corrosion (tribocorrosion) environment. The practical works use reciprocating pin-on-plate tribometer, as well as some surface chemistry analysis such as 3D interferometry, SEM-EDS and XPS.
