Hydrogen embrittlement is a common, dangerous, and poorly understood cause of failure in many metal alloys. This article presents a model based on the correlation of mechanical properties to scanning electron microscopy fractography analysis of fracture surfaces in the presence of simultaneously active hydrogen embrittlement micro-mechanisms.
This article shows how biological electrochemical reactions can be used to bioremediate hexavalent chromate, i.e., Cr6+ or Cr(VI), waste waters in the presence of other potentially toxic species used in chromate conversion coatings.
This post illustrates a state-of-the-art fastener production line.
We kindly invite all members of the materials and corrosion communities to submit their best work for consideration in the special issue of Metals, an Open Access journal on metallurgy, dedicated to environmental cracking.
Is sulfide stress cracking an anodic or a cathodic process? Does hydrogen play a role or is SSC controlled by anodic dissolution? Find out in this post!
This article solved the puzzle of vanadate speciation in aqueous solutions and its effect on aluminum alloy corrosion inhibition.
