Effect of minor nickel alloying with zinc on the electrochemical and corrosion behavior of zinc in alkaline solution
The electrochemical and corrosion behavior of pure zinc and Zn–0.5Ni alloy in strong alkaline solution (7 M KOH) was investigated by Tafel plot, potentiodynamic, potentiostatic and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods, and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Measurements were conducted under different experimental conditions. The results of both Tafel plot extrapolation and the electrochemical impedance ... Read more
