Interactions between metal surfaces and atmospheric sulphur dioxide

by Duncan, John Roderick

Abstract (Summary)
Previous workers have shown that atmorpheric SO2 has a considerable influence on rates of metal corrosion in the atmosphere. However, few quantitative data on the initial stages of such an influence, namely the adsorption and initial reactions of the SO2, have been available. In this study, 35S is used as a radioactive label to enable collection of such data while using SO2 concentrations which are comparable with those occurring in the atmosphere. The metals studied are iron and zinc.
