Paper Title:
A Comparative Study of Corrosion Behaviour of Amorphous and Nanocrystalline Ti60Ni40 in 0.5 M H2SO4 and 0.5 M HNO3 Aqueous Media
  Abstract

Corrosion studies were carried out using potentiodynamic polarization method on amorphous, nanocrystalline and crystalline states of the alloy Ti60Ni40 in 0.5 M H2SO4 and 0.5 M HNO3 aqueous media at room temperature. The nanocrystalline state of Ti60Ni40 was obtained by removing about 10 μm from the air side surface (crystalline state) by polishing. The presence of nanocrystalline phase was confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). It was found from polarization results that the corrosion current density was higher in the amorphous state than in the nanocrystalline state in both 0.5 M H2SO4 and 0.5 M HNO3 aqueous media. These results are corroborated by the weight loss studies which were carried out in both of these media. Results are discussed in the paper in the light of data reported in the literature on similar type of alloys.
