In order to understand the mechanisms of corrosion, solve the corrosion problems encountered in service conditions, and improve the corrosion resistance of commonly used materials as well as materials of the future, the use of modern surface analytical and electrochemical techniques is essential.
Corrosion phenomena take place at the surface of materials exposed to chemically aggressive environments. Not only the initiation of corrosion, but also its propagation is essentially a surface chemical and electrochemical process. Therefore no significant progress can be achieved in this area without the use of modern surface chemical and structural characterization methods combined with electrochemical techniques.
The aim of this book is to provide the readers, for the first time, with a book in which both the major surface analytical techniques and the electrochemical techniques are presented, discussed, and illustrated by selected examples of applications to corrosion science and engineering.
In order to cover the large number of surface analytical and electrochemical techniques used for corrosion science and engineering, this book contains 19 chapters. The surface analytical techniques provide the necessary information on the surface chemical composition, structure, topography, defects, mechanical and electronic properties, in close relationship with the kinetic data on corrosion that are obtained by electrochemical techniques.
