Part of the Kreysa Continuation Series Series


Corrosion Handbook Sulfur Dioxide, Sodium Sulfate 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 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. The influence of Sulfur Dioxide on some 800 materials and the effect of Sodium Sulfate on some 1300 materials constitute the contents of this tenth volume . Unrivaled in the research and evaluation of the international pertinent literature, more than 1100 references to primary sources, 270 figures and 180 tables arranged by agents/environment represent the most detailed corrosion data available.


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 )

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.
