Corrosion of innovative magnesium (Mg) alloys

Abstract

This chapter deals with the corrosion performance of innovative or un-conventional magnesium alloys. It considers on the one hand all magnesium alloys that have an unusual microstructure and/or composition mostly as a result of extreme processing conditions and on the other hand innovative concepts to improve the corrosion performance of conventional alloys.The available literature is reviewed and the specific influences of the microstructure and/or composition on corrosion behaviour is discussed and general possibilities to improve corrosion resistance of these alloys are highlighted.
