Remarkable changes in information technology have occurred, and information and data are now routinely available by way of the World Wide Web. This article lists selected information sources and databases and demonstrates the way they are accessed. It presents information for a corrosionist in five areas: societies and associations addressing corrosion and related topics; corrosion standards, specifications, recommended practices, and related topics; sources of corrosion information; corrosion databases and data compilations; and other web resources.
Electropolishing is an electrochemical process that involves anodic dissolution of a metal specimen (anode electrode) in an electrolytic cell. This article reviews the two-electrode and three-electrode systems for electropolishing. It presents the equations of anodic reactions and the selection criteria of electrolyte for electropolishing. The article also describes the mechanism of electropolishing and the effect of electropolishing on properties of metals.
