The diffractogram of corrosion products obtained after 96 h of exposure (Figure 7) shows peaks at approximately 18[degrees], 30[degrees], 35[degrees], 38[degrees], 50[degrees], and 54[degrees] which are the same as those of mackinawite (M), that is, a tetragonal crystalline form of iron sulfide [18].

Pyrite formation in nature requires two processes: (1) [Fe.sup.2+] first forms mackinawite in Fe-rich solutions ([Fe.sup.2+.sub.aq] + [H.sub.2][S.sub.aq]/H[S.sub.aq.sup.-] [right arrow] FeS); (2) mackinawite then dissolves and forms pyrite (FeS + [S.sup.2-.sub.n]/[H.sub.2]S [right arrow] Fe[S.sub.2]).

When exposed to sulphur species in bio-environments, iron and steel first develop a poorly protective film of mackinawite (an iron sulfide rich in iron) that changes later, to a more stable iron sulfides through different chemical and electrochemical paths.
Corrosion rate of mild steel at extremely low [H.sub.2]S controls the corrosion rate even when present in minute amounts, [H.sub.2]S reduces the pure C[O.sub.2] ([H.sub.2]S-free) corrosion rate by 3-10 times due to formation of a thin mackinawite film.
