By Allen J. Bard, Martin Stratmann, Gerald S. Frankel

Unrivalled in its breadth and intensity, this 11-volume encyclopedia presents either a simple creation to all issues relating to glossy electrochemistry in addition to a finished evaluation of the topic. all through, the emphasis is in quick access to info, with each subject handled at an introductory, medium and complicated point. This top notch reference paintings is edited and written via popular scientists, overlaying every little thing from basic study to components of program. Alan Bard, skilled editor of the magazine of the yankee Chemical Society, is without doubt one of the most famed specialists in electrochemistry and one of many editors-in-chief.

The concept of the corrosion potential can also be illustrated in a linear i –E plot. Figure 7 shows two curves representing the Butler–Volmer equation for the metal and hydrogen reactions. The point at which the rate of metal dissolution equals the rate of hydrogen evolution is the potential at which the metal curve is as high above the potential axis as the hydrogen curve is below the axis. That distance is the corrosion rate. 1. Using a potentiostat, Fig. 7 Kinetics of a corroding active metal in an acid, plotted on linear axes.

1991. 1 Fundamental Aspects of Uniform Corrosion Introduction to Uniform Corrosion It is of importance to predict the lifetime of a metallic component in a specific corrosive system. For uniform corrosion (also called homogeneous corrosion), the lifetime can be calculated if the kinetics of the reactions are known and if no localized attack or corrosion cracks could appear. In this chapter, the kinetic aspects of the homogenous corrosion process will be considered. Only electrochemical corrosion mechanisms are regarded, not chemical and physical ones.
