Abstract:The present work studies the corrosion of three most widely used types of structural ceramics – silicon nitride, solid state sintered alumina and liquid phase sintered alumina – in 3 % aqueous solutions of sodium chloride at temperatures up to 290 °C and pressures up to 7 MPa. The corrosion of silicon nitride was controlled by attack of Si3N4 matrix grains, while yttrium oxynitride amorphous grain boundary phase was corrosion resistant. Corrosion of Si3N4 in reference media -distilled water - at 290 °C was cha… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
