Title: Mechanistic insights into the oxidation behavior of Ni alloys in high-temperature CO 2

Abstract

We present results of a Ni superalloy oxidized for short times in high purity CO 2 and similarly in Ar containing ≤ 1 ppb O 2. A detailed analysis of the oxidized surfaces reveals striking similarities for the two exposure environments, suggesting O 2 impurities control the oxidation process in high-temperature CO 2. Selective oxidation results in Cr-rich oxide layers grown by 2 outward diffusion, while Cr vacancies left in the metal contribute to significant void formation at the oxide/metal interface. Unlike for most of the alloy surface, the oxidation behavior of secondary phase metal carbides is considerably different in the two environments.
