The electrochemical effect of NNDT on the corrosion polarization curves (anodic and cathodic) for mild steel in the acid media was investigated.
The essential retention of physical properties for the peroxide cured compound are totally consistent with the absence of any electrochemical effect on its crosslink network.
For some 90 years, explains Mizutani (Nagoy Industrial Science Research Institute, Japan), the Hume-Rothery rules on factors that enhance or hinder the stability of phases in materials has focused attention on three aspects of alloying: the electrochemical effects, the size factor effects, and the change of electron concentration.
For example, leakage currents across or through insulation, noise current generated by triboelectric or piezoelectric effects, current associated with dielectric absorption, and electrochemical effects due to surface contamination can all contribute to measurement errors.
The use of dissimilar metals in the fluid aging vessel will also introduce legitimate electrochemical effects.
This great potential is also now backed by a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that drive the observed optical and electrochemical effects. For all these reasons, it is believed that conjugated polymeric assemblies should allow the versatile design of novel integrated chemical systems (incorporating a trigger, a transducer, and an amplifier) and should, therefore, lead, in the near future, to new applications in the areas of sensors, diagnostics, and drug screening.
