Abstract

This article examines a type of corrosion that occurs when solids (primarily metals) are exposed to liquid metal environments. It describes the principle mechanisms of liquid metal corrosion, including dissolution, impurity and interstitial reactions, alloying, and compound reduction. It also provides guidelines for materials selection and alloy development based on liquid metal corrosion reactions.
