Abstract:

A rate and mechanism study of the corrosion of titanium metal by a hot perfluoropolyether lubricant has been carried out by a laser beam reflectance technique. A Fourier transform photoacoustic spectroscopy FTPAS technique has been developed that is potentially capable of producing absorption spectra of opaque surfaces at infrared wavelengths. FTPAS was not found suitable for studying corrosion of titanium because of thermal problems with the piezoelectric detector. Some homogeneous solution kinetic studies of reactions in water, acetonitrile and methanol were carried out also. Author o
