Material scientists and engineers often have to conduct many expensive and time-consuming corrosion experiments to fully qualify a material or design more corrosion resistant ones. Corrosion is a kinetic process that is driven by the underlying thermodynamics of a system that is a material in a given environment. Thermodynamic investigation of corrosion under various environments is extremely important for efficient design and production of high-quality materials, for advanced processing of corrosion-resistant coatings, for optimal performance of commercial materials in industrial, environmental, medical and military applications and for environmental protections and safety assessments.
