The corrosion behavior of a metal or alloy is determined by its composition and structural features, the environment and stresses to which it is exposed, and the behavior of any corrosion products generated. This article provides a detailed discussion on the fundamentals of pure metals, impure metals, and alloys. It highlights the ways in which the metallurgical variables, namely, composition and structure, influence the corrosion properties of metals and alloys in aqueous environment.
