Abstract

IT is well known that ‘water-line’ corrosion is caused, and salt-spray corrosion is facilitated, by the easy access of oxygen to the metal through the three-phase boundary between the metal, the electrolyte and the atmosphere. The experiments described below give some insight into the mechanism of the arrival of oxygen at such menisci and its electro-dissolution.
