Desorption of Tritiated Bound-water from the Passive Film Formed on Stainless Steels

Abstract

IT has been admitted by a number of workers that the passivity of metals is caused by a formation of passive films as a result of electrochemical reactions between metals and their environment. The passive film has been assumed to be a sort of hydrous oxide which has more or less colloidal character.
