New technique for investigating the action of molybdate on carbon steel

In the search for corrosion-resistant treatments for carbon steel that are non-toxic, A*STAR researchers have developed a technique for investigating the effectiveness of a corrosion inhibitor that is safer and environmentally friendly.

Carbon steel, an alloy made from iron and carbon, is the single largest class of alloys in use today. It’s used to make a range of products from fences and springs to steel wires and pipelines, and for structural support in buildings, bridges, as well as nuclear power and fossil fuel power plants.
