Abstract
Surface analysis by time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy has been applied to provide new insight on Mo effects on the composition and nanostructure of the passive films grown in sulfuric acid on well-controlled Fe–17Cr–14.5Ni–2.3Mo(100) austenitic stainless steel single crystal surfaces. A duplex hydroxylated oxide matrix, 1.8–1.9 nm thick, is formed with a strong partition between Cr(III) and Fe(III) in the inner and outer layers, respectively. Cr(III) is increasingly enriched by preferential iron oxide dissolution upon passivation and ageing. Ni, only present as oxide traces in the film, is enriched in the alloy underneath. Mo, mostly present as Mo(IV) in the Cr-rich inner layer prior to anodic polarisation, becomes increasingly enriched (up to 16% of cations) mostly as Mo(VI) in the Fe-rich outer layer of the passive film, with ageing promoting this effect. Metallic Mo is not significantly enriched below the passive film produced from the native oxide covered surface. Mo does not markedly impact the nanogranular morphology of the native oxide film nor its local thickness variations assigned to substrate site effects on Cr(III) enrichment. Site specific preferential passivation still takes place at the (native) oxide-covered step edges of the alloy surface, and transient dissolution remains preferentially located on the terraces. Nanostructures, possibly Mo-containing, and healing local depressions formed by transient dissolution during passivation, appear as a specific effect of the Mo presence. Another Mo effect, observed even after 20 h of passivation, is to prevent crystallisation at least in the Fe-rich outer part of the passive film where it is concentrated mostly as Mo(VI) (i.e. molybdate) species.

Abstract The electronic properties of the granular and intergranular sites of passive films grown on Ni(1 1 1) single-crystal surfaces in alkaline solution have been studied with scanning tunnelling spectroscopy. The results show no effect of the grain boundaries on the intrinsic semiconductive properties of the single layer hydroxide passive film. In contrast the local properties of the duplex oxide/hydroxide passive film are changed from nearly intrinsic on the grains to p -type at the grain b...

Electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy has been employed to investigate the growth mechanism of the 2D adlayer formed on Ag(111) surfaces in the potential range negative to 3D sulfide growth in HS–-containing alkaline aqueous solution. The results show that (2√3 × 2√3)R30°, (√3 × √3)R30°, and (√7 × √7)R19° superstructures are formed with potential-driven increasing uptake of sulfur up to saturation and that extraction of Ag adatoms from the terrace edges is induced by adsorption already a...

Kinetics expressions for passivity breakdown have been determined based on a model taking into account the presence of intergranular defective sites in passive films. It is shown that depending on the interface at which the potential drop increase predominates, passivity breakdown can occur by enhanced dissolution i.e., oxide thinning at the oxide/electrolyte interface or by accelerated interfacial voiding at the metal/oxide interface. In all cases, the rate of the interfacial processes leading ...

Abstract Repassivation behavior of type-312L stainless steel containing 6% of molybdenum was examined in NaCl solution using in situ micro-indentation technique, together with type-304 and 316L stainless steels. High stability of the passive film formed on the type-312L stainless steel was also examined by depth profiling analysis of passive films using glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy (GDOES). In 0.9 mol dm −3 NaCl solution at 296 K the type-304 and 316L stainless steels are passive...

A model of passivity breakdown including the role of the inter-granular boundaries of the barrier oxide layer on the redistribution of the potential at the metal/oxide/electrolyte interfaces in the passive state is presented. Different mechanisms of breakdown at the oxide grain boundaries are considered, depending on which interface governs the potential drop: (i) local thinning and dissolution of the oxide layer, (ii) metal voiding or (iii) particle growth at the metal/oxide interface followed ...

The surface structural modifications induced by underpotential anodic oxidation have been studied at the Ag(111)/0.1 M NaOH(aq) interface by in situ electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy. For Epzc ≤ E ≤ −0.1 V/SHE, no specific surface structure results from the adsorption of hydroxide ions, indicating the formation of a weakly bonded and mobile layer of adsorbed hydroxide species. For −0.05 ≤ E ≤ 0.05 V/SHE, the Ag(111) surface undergoes reconstruction. The terraces become completely cov...

Abstract The characterization of the “native” surface thin film on pure polycrystalline iron has been studied by high resolution X-ray photoelectron (XP) spectroscopy of Fe 2p and O 1s regions. The film was allowed to form by exposing the sample to atmosphere at ambient conditions for a period of 1 h. The systematic approach used here includes the determination of curve fitting parameters from external standards and their use in fitting the raw data for the surface thin film. The quantitative hi...

Abstract Electrochemical analysis, XPS, and ToF-SIMS are combined to characterize the passive properties of 254SMO stainless steel in the simulated condensates after flue gas desulfurization at different temperatures. Increase in condensate temperature causes the enhanced transpassive dissolution and surface deterioration as well as the involvement of oxygen reduction. Solution deaeration counteracts with the reaction rate acceleration, yielding an invariable donor density from 40 to 60 oC. Diss...

Abstract The modifications of the passive film formed on 316 L stainless steel surface during stepwise heating in ultra-high vacuum up to 300 °C have been studied in situ by ToF-SIMS. The pre-formed passive film (in 0.05 M H2SO4) has a bilayer structure, comprising Fe-rich, Mo-rich (outer) and Cr-rich (inner) layers. Below 100 °C, the passive film is stable. At 100 °C - 250 °C, dehydroxylation and dehydration is observed. Above 250 °C, the main modification in the film is formation of chromium o...

Abstract XPS and ToF-SIMS analysis have been combined with electrochemical measurements to determine the corrosion behavior of the equiatomic CoCrFeMnNi high entropy alloy. An XPS methodology based on analysis of the 3p core level spectra was developed to determine the composition and thickness of oxide films. Both native oxide (∼1.4 nm) and passive films (∼ 1.6 nm) formed in acidic medium are duplex, comprising Cr and Mn inner layer and Cr/Fe/Co mixture outer layer. No nickel is observed in the...

Abstract Passivation mechanisms were investigated on (100)-oriented Fe-18Cr-13Ni surfaces with direct transfer between surface preparation and analysis by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy and electrochemical characterization. Starting from oxide-free surfaces, pre-oxidation at saturation under ultra-low pressure (ULP) oxygen markedly promotes the oxide film Cr(III) enrichment and hinders/delays subsequent iron oxidation in water-containing environment. Exposure ...

Abstract A detailed thermodynamic assessment has for the first time shown that the rapid oxide film formation on stainless steels subjected to the natural air atmosphere at room temperature is actually facilitated by “oxygen dissolution induced surface directed spinodal decomposition” in the Fe-Cr-O solid solution. The proposed mechanism has led to a clear explanation of the following until now un-explained observations: i) complete compositional stratification involving a sub-surface segregatio...

Abstract The passive and electrochemical behaviors of FeCoCrNiMox high-entropy alloys in sulfuric acid were investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electrochemical methods. The passive film is a bilayer structure composed of an outer layer with a mixed Cr/Fe oxides and hydroxides, and an inner layer that contains a strong enrichment of Cr(III) species with higher Cr(ox)/Cr(hyd) ratio. The Cr/Mo ratio in the alloy determines the passive ability and the compositions of the passive fil...

Abstract The durability of passivable metals and alloys is often limited by the stability of the surface oxide film, the passive film, providing self-protection against corrosion in aggressive environments. Improving this stability requires to develop a deeper understanding of the surface structure and initial surface reactivity at the nanometric or atomic scale. In this work we applied scanning tunneling microscopy to unravel the surface structure of a model stainless steel surface in the metal...
