Abstract:

Adsorbed surface-active species can influence the strength of materials by affecting cohesion and dislocation behavior at the surface, and possibly by affecting dissolution behavior in mildly corrosive environments. These and other possibilities are discussed in connection with such phenomena as liquid metal embrittlement, stress-corrosion cracking, complex-ion embrittlement, Rebinder effects, the adsorption-locking of dislocations, and the photo- and electromechanical effects.
