The electrochemical behavior and biocompatibility of the micro/nano-structured α+β Ti–3.5Fe–3.9Cu alloy were investigated in this work. The alloy was produced by tilt-casting method and subjected to subsequent hot dual-axial forging at 1173 K. It is shown that the electrochemical behavior and biocompatibility of the Ti–3.5Fe–3.9Cu alloy are close to, or even better, than those of a typical commercial Ti-6Al-4V alloy widely used as implants. This demonstrates that the Ti–3.5Fe–3.9Cu alloy shows a good potential for application as biomaterial.
