Abstract

Ion implantation has an important role in corrosion science as a research tool to study the influence of various elements on the corrosion behaviour of materials. In the present paper this is illustrated with some high temperature corrosion studies. Notably, its use for studying the mechanisms underlying the so-called reactive element effect; for developing more corrosion resistant TiAl-based intermetallic alloys and to address mechanistic questions concerned with mixed oxidation/sulphidation. It is shown that ion implantation can be a very efficient technique in the frame of screening tests for evaluating the effect of possible alloying additions in materials. Additionally, it can also play a role to study the underlying corrosion mechanisms.
