Progress in Corrosion Science and Engineering II
This and volume no. 47 of Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry is composed of eight chapters covering topics having relevance both in corrosion science and materials engineering. In particular, the first seven chapters provide comprehensive coverage of recent advances in corrosion science.
Comprehensive review of the structural aspects and anti-corrosion properties of passive films on metals and alloysA detailed description is given of the nucleation and growth of 2-dimensional passive films at earlier stages, their effect on the corrosion properties of metal surfaces, and the nanostructures of 3-dimensional passive films Research on nano- and micro-fabrications based on anodizing treatments combined with chemical/mechanical processes such as laser irradiation, atomic force micro-probe processing, and thin film deposition techniquesTheoretical analysis of the admittance behavior of passive film/electrolyte junction based on the theory of amorphous semiconductor Schottky barriers
