It is the purpose of the present to report result of a preliminary electrochemical characterization of the as-cast Mg-Ca alloys. Electrochemical data will be correlated with chemical composition of impurities, and the microstructural change before and after Ca is added. This paper shows that small addition of Ca imparts beneficial effect in electrochemical properties of Mg alloy, primarily, through microstructural modifications.
