Summary:
Corrosion experiments have been performed upon steel and copper in natural sea water, photo-oxidized sea water and 3.5% sodium chloride-distilled water solutions. Anodic and cathodic polarization scans were conducted, and the resulting curves were employed to characterize corrosion behavior in each of the electrolytes. While little difference as a function of electrolyte was noted for tests upon copper, variations were apparent in the case of steel. The effect of environment has been interpreted in terms of differences in organics adsorbed upon the metal surface from one electrolyte to the next. Significance of adsorbed organics upon corrosion rate of steel in sea water is discussed.
