Corrosion Handbook Potassium Hydroxide, Ammonium and Ammonium Hydroxide Corrosive Agents and Their Interaction with Materials by Gerhard Kreysa

The DECHEMA Corrosion Handbook provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge which is unique both in scope as well as content. Corrosion data and the chemical resistance of all technically important metallic, non-metallic, inorganic and organic materials in contact with aggressive media are covered, constituting the prime information source worldwide for the selection of materials for equipment in which corrosive media are handled or processed. Furthermore, methods of corrosion protection and prevention are also described. Faced with the task of optimizing a given environment-material system, the user of this work will find answers to the following questions: Is there information available on the behavior of the material under consideration in a particular medium? Which materials are out of question for the proposed purpose? Which materials can be used without hesitation in the medium concerned? What are the conditions under which a less resistant, less costly material will give satisfactory service? Which material offers best performance for value under the given circumstances? What protective measures exist: inhibitors, coatings, cathodic protection, etc.?


Concluding it can be stated, that also by this book DECHEMA fulfills its slogan to be the prime source of corrosion expertise in a sovereign manner. ( Materials and Corrosion )

In the course of his career, Professor Kreysa has received several national and international scientific awards, and honorary doctorates from the University of Clausthal and the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He is a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, teaches at the universities of Dortmund and Regensburg and holds numerous honorary positions. He is also actively involved in issues pertaining to research and the public acceptance of science and technology. Michael Schutze, born 1952, studied materials sciences at the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg from 1972 to 1978, then joined the Karl Winnacker Institute of the DECHEMA as a research associate. He received his doctorate in engineering sciences from the RWTH (Technical University) in Aachen in 1983, completed his habilitation in 1991, becoming a member of the external teaching staff of the RWTH. Since 1998, he holds a professorship there. In 1996, he was appointed director of the Karl Winnacker Institute. He is recipient of the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Prize and the Rahmel-Schwenk medal, past Chairman of the Gordon Research Conference on Corrosion, editor of the journal Materials and Corrosion and Chairman of the European Federation Working Party Corrosion by Hot Gases and Combustion Products.
