Effects of Metallurgical Variables on Dealloying Corrosion
Dealloying is a corrosion process in which one or more elements are selectively dissolved, leaving behind a porous residue of the remaining elements. This article describes the dealloying in various systems, namely, dezincification, graphitic corrosion, dealuminification, and noble metal alloys dealloying. The current-potential behavior of a binary alloy undergoing selective dissolution is reviewed. The article highlights the four mechanisms required for the formation of porous metals: ionization-redeposition, surface diffusion, volume diffusion, and percolation model of selective dissolution.
