Abstract

The corrosion behavior of CoCrFeNiMox alloys was investigated in aqueous environments, NaCl and H2SO4 solutions, respectively, to simulate typical neutral and acidic conditions. The cyclic polarization curves in NaCl and the potentiodynamic curves in H2SO4 clearly reveal the beneficial effects of Mo and the detrimental effect of σ-phase on the corrosion resistance. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy results of CoCrFeNiMox alloys in H2SO4 solution indicate that Cr and Mo predominate the corroded surface of the alloys, where Mo primarily exists in the form of MoO3 .
