The Chemistry of Corrosion.

In general corrosion is the reaction of a material with its environment. This leads to a change, and thus affecting the functionality of the material. In the chemical sense corrosion is an electrochemical reaction of the material, eg with oxygen (rust), acid, water, microorganisms, etc.

The aspects of corrosion protection play in the technical field an important role, because the corrosion can cause the deterioration and failure, for example, of the function of devices, components and entire systems.
