Corrosion Potential and Corrosion Current

  • Xiaoge Gregory Zhang


Corrosion potential is a mixed potential (also an open-circuit potential or rest potential) at which the rate of anodic dissolution of the electrode equals the rate of cathodic reactions and there is no net current flowing in or out of the electrode. Corrosion current is the dissolution current at the corrosion potential.
