Electrochemistry in corrosion research


Corrosion is common in the petrochemical industry, particularly in the areas of production, transport and refinery. It is an electrochemical process, which is why it is best described using electrochemical methods. The potentiostats manufactured by Metrohm Autolab are particularly suitable for this purpose. The potentiostats use various techniques for understanding the corrosion processes, primarily linear polarization and impedance spectroscopy (EIS).
