Sorption phenomena on the surface of steel in solutions of nitrilotrimethylphosphonic acid

  • 1 Russian Chemical-Technological University named after D.I. Mendeleev (Russia, Moscow)


Corrosion behavior of plain steel in alkaline copper-containing solutions was studied. Cementation of steel is inhibited by formation of the passive film on the steel surface. Formation of the film is due to the reacting steel and complex of divalent copper complex with ATMP.
