Abstract:

Additions of Nitrogen to Molybdenum bearing and essentially Mo free stainless steels result in much higher improvements in general corrosion resistance and pitting resistance. The most dramatic improvements are observed in the Mo bearing steels. This enquiry is attempting to model the roles of N and Mo in passivity. X Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy XPS has been utilized along with electrochemical analysis and a new surface doping treatment devised for this work in order to facilitate this study.
