Application of X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy at the S K-edge to the structural characterisation of surface reacted metallic alloysFunded under: JRC-ADVMAT 1C
X-ray absorption spectroscopy has been used to study the interaction of H(2)S at 700 C with a protective oxide layer on a Ni-20Cr alloy. Both fluorescence and electron yield detection modes, applied simultanteously, enable structural information from 100 nm and 5 nm respectively to be probed which allows the processes at the air/oxide and oxide/alloy interfaces to be monitored as a function of corrosion time. The data reveal sulphur to be in a high 6+ oxidation state in the early stages of the corrosion process, changing to 2- with the formation of a thicker sulphide-like surface film.
