It is known that small concentrations of certain 'active elements' such as Y and the rare earths, as well as carbon and sulphur, can exercise a significant influence upon the oxidation/corrosion behaviour of high temperature metals and alloys. This report reviews and evaluates the current state-of-the-art and discusses various aspects, including the effects of active elements in synthetic oxides and on the oxidation of metals and alloys, the interaction of sulphur and carbon in oxidation and the practical implications and future outlook for this subject area.
