About this product
- DescriptionThis SpringerBrief utilizes a surface chemistry/physical chemistry approach toward the study of aqueous corrosion processes. The book starts with a timely and in-depth review of Acid-Base Properties of Surface Oxide Films. Acid-base properties are significant in various surface phemena such as general and localized corrosion, corrosion inhibition by organic molecules, and the adhesion of organic polymers to oxide-covered metals. This review also discusses the relationship between the two measures of surface charge, the isoelectric point of the oxide film and the potential of zero charge of the oxide-covered metal. Other topics included are capillarity and corrosion, corrosion inhibition, passivity of Fe-Cr and Fe-Cr-Ni alloys, the uptake of chloride Ions and the pitting of aluminum, and the formation of water films on the iron oxide surface.
- Author BiographyDr. Edward McCafferty, formerly of the Naval Research Laboratory, is currently a consultant in Alexandria, VA. He has published extensively in the fields of corrosion science and surface chemistry. Dr. McCafferty's interests include corrosion and corrosion protection, localized corrosion, corrosion inhibition, models of passivity and its breakdown, oxide surfaces, surface modification techniques such as ion implantation and laser-surface processing, and the adhesion of organic polymers. Dr. McCafferty is a Fellow of the Electrochemical Society and is the 2007 recipient of the H. H. Uhlig Award of the Electrochemical Society for excellence in corrosion research. Dr. McCafferty is also Past Chairman of the Corrosion Division of the Electrochemical Society. He has received the Jerome Kruger Award in Corrosion Science, Baltimore-Washington Chapter of NACE (2003) and the Victor K. LaMer Award of the American Chemical Society (1971). Dr. McCafferty holds a B.S. in Chemistry from Wilkes College, an M.S. and Ph.D in Chemistry from Lehigh University, and an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Johns Hopkins University. He has been a Visiting Scientist, Department of Chemistry and the Center for Adhesive and Sealant Science, Virginia Tech University (1996-1997) and a Robert A. Welch Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas with Prof. Norman Hackerman (1968-1970). He has also had industrial experience as a Research Engineer at the Bethlehem Steel Corporation (1955-1959).
