Abstract: Magnesium and its alloys have excellent physical and mechanical properties for a number of applications. In particular its high strength:weight ratio makes it an ideal metal for automotive and aerospace applications, where weight reduction is of significant concern. Unfortunately, magnesium and its alloys are highly susceptible to corrosion, particularly in salt-spray conditions. This has limited its use in the automotive and aerospace industries, where exposure to harsh service conditions is unavoidable. The simplest way to avoid corrosion is to coat the magnesium-based substrate to prevent contact with the environment. This review details the state of the art in coating and surface modification technologies, applied to magnesium based substrates for improved corrosion and wear resistance. The topics covered include electrochemical plating, conversion coatings, anodizing, gas-phase deposition processes, laser surface alloying/cladding and organic coatings.

Abstract: It is suggested that in practical nonaqueous battery systems the alkali and alkaline earth metals are always covered by a surface layer which is instantly formed by the reaction of the metal with the electrolyte. This layer, which acts as an interphase between the metal and the solution, has the properties of a solid electrolyte. The corrosion rate of the metal, the mechanism of the deposition‐dissolution process, the kinetic parameters, the quality of the metal deposit, and the half‐cell potential depend on the character of the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI).

Abstract: The high strength to weight ratio of magnesium alloys makes them extremely attractive for applications in transport or aerospace technology. However, their corrosion behavior is a major issue and one reason why they are still not as popular as aluminum alloys. This papers reviews the corrosion mechanisms of magnesium and provides the basis for the design of new alloys with improved corrosion properties.
