Description: In recent years the particular significance of Materials Science and Technology has been generally accepted in the industrial countries. The use of materials in different applications is limited due to their natural tendency to react with their environment, i.e. corrosion. Since corrosion is typically an electrochemical phenomenon, different electrochemical methods form the scientific basis of corrosion research.
