Abstract :

The significant rise in land, water and air pollution has led the researchers worldwide to look into materials and technologies that can sustain and utilize materials that are not toxic even under the conditions of indiscriminate disposal by rogue industries. Magnesium is a perfect solution for material researchers to address above issues. It is one of the most abundant elements in planet earth (both land and water bodies) that possess nutritional characteristics for wellbeing of both plants and animals. Being the lightest metallic element (1.74 g/cc) that can be used as structural material in both engineering and biomedical applications, it guarantees the reduction in CO2 emission in weight critical applications such as transportation sector (including automobile, aerospace, space and sports sectors). The aluminum based materials (density ~2.7 g/cc) are currently used extensively in transportation sector as lightweight materials and Magnesium based materials can offer ~33% saving at component level. For biomedical sector, Magnesium based materials offers a unique advantage of degrading within body thus assisting in avoiding revision surgery and minimizing patient trauma, doctor├ó┬?┬?s time and medical treatment cost. Accordingly, the aim of this presentation will be to provide a snapshot to the audience with a diverse background about the dynamic and multifunctional capabilities of Magnesium based materials that are likely to make it a dominant metallic material in very near future.
