Spark of Life: Thermodynamics of electrochemistry in hydrothermal vents for the emergence of Life

Since the discovery of a natural electrical current across deep-sea hydrothermal chimneys, a new energy source is considered for the emergence of life. In modern hydrothermal vents, this current is…

Modeling of Electrochemical Oxide Film Growth

Ingmar Bösing, Jorg Thöming, Fabio La Mantia

Our civilization would not be possible without stable oxide films on metal surfaces. These oxide films, also known as passive films, can slow down corrosion about three orders of magnitude, and thus passive…

Interplay between electronic properties and corrosion resistance of passive films on different stainless steel grades

Stainless steels (SSs) are a class of iron-based alloys containing different elements, such as Cr, Ni, Mo, Mn, etc.. According to European Standard, a steel can be considered…
