On completion of this TLP, you should:
- Be familiar with the concept and mechanism of aqueous corrosion
- Know what factors affect the rate of aqueous corrosion
- Be familiar with the use of Tafel plots to predict aqueous corrosion rates
Some sections require knowledge of the Pourbaix diagram. Details of the thermodynamics of aqueous corrosion and the Pourbaix diagram can be found in the TLP entitled The Nernst Equation and Pourbaix Diagrams.
