Scholarcy highlights

  • Corrosion is often a problem when metals are in contact with an aqueous environment
  • Trace impurities can include gases dissolved from the atmosphere, oxygen and carbon dioxide, that play important roles in the corrosion process
  • Where the metal makes up an essential component of a structure, such as a bridge or equipment forming part of an industrial process, for example, a cooling water circuit, constant vigilance is required to maintain the integrity of the structure and the equipment involved
  • Corrosion is a complex phenomenon dependent on chemical and physical conditions within the particular system
