Abstract Magnesium alloy has similar mechanical properties with natural bone, but its high susceptibility to corrosion has limited its application in orthopedics. In this study, a calcium phosphate coating is formed on magnesium alloy (AZ31) to control its degradation rate and enhance its bioactivity and bone inductivity. Samples of AZ31 plate were placed in the supersaturated calcification solution prepared with Ca(NO$_{3}$)$_{2}$, NaH$_{2}$PO$_{4}$ and NaHCO$_{3}$, then the calcium phosphate coating formed. Through adjusting the immersion time, the thickness of uniform coatings can be changed from 10 to 20 μm. The composition, phase structure and morphology of the coatings were investigated. Bonding strength of the coatings and substrate was 2–4 MPa in this study. The coatings significantly decrease degradation rate of the original Mg alloy, indicating that the Mg alloy with calcium phosphate coating is a promising degradable bone material.
