Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Corrosion by Organic Solvents
This article describes the classification of organic solvents, namely, aprotic and protic solvents and one-component and multi-component systems. It discusses the corrosion behavior in aprotic and protic solvents. The article contains a table that presents the relationship among solution conductivity, acidity, and the corrosion rates of type 304 stainless steel in protic and aprotic solvents. The article reviews important environmental variables that influence corrosion testing in organic liquids.
