Organic acids represent a key group of industrial chemicals. This article provides information on the corrosion characteristics of organic acids. It focuses on corrosion caused by acetic, formic, and propionic acids on various metals and alloy groups. These include steel, aluminum, copper and its alloys, stainless steels, titanium, and nickel alloys. The article also provides information on longer-chain organic acids.
