Effect of nitriding on the oxidation kinetics of niobium


  1. 1.

    The oxidation of niobium in air under, atmospheric pressure in the 600–700°C interval proceeds linearly; in this case, the process begins from a stage of parabolic oxidation to 650°C.

  2. 2.

    The nitriding of niobium specimens in a nitrogen-hydrogen mixture at 900°C significantly improves their oxidation resistance in air.
