Standard reduction potential in corrosion process is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the relationship existing between free energy and the equilibrium constant in the corrosion process. The course will also introduce you to the step-by-step process for deriving the Nernst equation for any reaction experiencing corrosion. The standard reduction potential series for pure metals, as well as the reduction potentials in acidic and neutral solutions will also be covered in this course.
This course then explains the various limitations and benefits of standard reduction potential series of pure metals, as well as the concept of concentration cell formation. You will learn about the galvanic series, some examples of concentration cells, as well as the spontaneity of the corrosion process. This course will teach you about the relevance of spontaneity in the corrosion process, as well as introduce you to the Pourbaix diagrams in corrosion.
Furthermore, this course will help you get familiar with how the Pourbaix diagram is constructed, as well as the required parameters for constructing the Pourbaix diagram. You will learn about how the Nernst equation can be expressed in terms of the pH levels of any reaction. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in standard reduction potential in corrosion process. So, register for this course and start your next learning journey today.Start Course Now
