Abstract A polydopamine (PDA) layer was sandwiched between a TiO2 coating and Mg substrate to enhance the corrosion protection. The PDA layer was covalently immobilized on Mg, and the TiO2 was coated by liquid phase deposition subsequently on it. The hybrid TiO2/PDA coated Mg exhibited significantly smaller free corrosion current density as well as a remarkably lower degradation rate in vitro (up to 21 days) in phosphate buffered saline compared to direct TiO2 coated and untreated Mg. The efficacy is ascribed to the organic PDA layer which suppresses the electric pathway of galvanic corrosion cell and therefore corrosion rate of magnesium. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
