Passivity of Metals and Semiconductors covers the proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on Passivity, held in Bombannes, France on May30 - June3, 1983. The said symposium is concerned with passivity of metallic materials, localized corrosion, experimental techniques, and classical techniques such as optical techniques and electron spectroscopy. The book is divided into five sections. Section I deals with the concepts involved in the composition-transport phenomena and covers topics such as the transport of oxygen and water in oxide layers; the kinetics of oxidation of silicon; and the oxidation rate laws of metals that form nonstoichiometric oxides. Section II covers related techniques and their specific applications such as study of passivity of iron by in situ methods; optical methods in the study of passive films; and the analysis of multiple layer surface films by modulated reflection spectroscopy. Section III tackles amorphous metals - their passivity, their depassivation and repassivation in localized corrosion, and a comparison of models for localized breakdown of passivity. Part IV discusses the photoelectrochemistry of semiconductors; Part V tackles passivation and localized corrosion of stainless steels. The text is recommended for organic chemists, metallurgists, and engineers who would like to know more about the passivity of metals and their applications in different fields.
