Title: Effect of electrodeposition temperature on grain orientation and corrosion resistance of nanocrystalline pure nickel

Abstract

The nanocrystalline pure nickels with different grain orientations were fabricated by direct current electrodeposition process. The grain size slightly decreased with the increasing of electrodeposition solution temperature. However, grain orientation was affected significantly. Comparing with samples obtained at 50 °C and 80 °C, sample obtained at 20 °C had the strongest (111) orientation plane which increased electrochemical corrosion resistance of this sample. At the same time, the lowest (111) orientation plane deteriorated electrochemical corrosion resistance of sample obtained at 50 °C. - Graphical abstract: The increased electrodeposition temperature promoted slightly grain refinement. The grain orientation was affected significantly by electrodeposition solution temperature. The (111) orientation plane of sample increased significantly corrosion resistance. Display Omitted.

  • The influence of columnar grain geometry on mechanical property was studied in an electrodeposited nanocrystalline Ni-Fe alloy. The compressive results show that the strength is independent of grain orientation. However, the plastic strain increased remarkably when the loading axis is parallel to the direction of grain columns, which is due to the enhanced grain boundary and dislocation activities. The significance of the current study is that a new strategy was developed to improve the ductility of nanocrystalline materials.
  • The thermal stability and modes of recrystallisation of nanocrystalline nickel has been observed through a conduction-based non-destructive test. Resistivity measurements have been utilised to quantify grain boundary volume fraction and microstructure. This observation makes clear the distinction of the factors that contribute to resistivity and demonstrates that these contributions are related to microstructure, either directly or in-directly. In static systems, the contribution of ordered grains and low-order grain boundary atomic arrangements in small grained material has been measured and correlated with resistivity. Measurements of in-situ resistivity conducted at high temperature gives changes with time which are related to grain growth,more » during heat treatment. This shows that resistivity can be used as a technique for observing the microstructure and grain growth of small grained material.« less
  • The effects of alloying elements in Ni-5at%X binary alloys on intergranular (IG) corrosion and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) have been assessed in 300–360 °C hydrogenated water at the Ni/NiO stability line. Alloys with Cr or Al additions exhibited grain boundary oxidation and IGSCC, while localized degradation was not observed for pure Ni, Ni-Cu or Ni-Fe alloys. Environment-enhanced crack growth was determined by comparing the response in water and N 2 gas. Lastly, results demonstrate that selective grain boundary oxidation of Cr and Al promoted IGSCC of these Ni alloys in hydrogenated water.
  • This paper discusses how the ratio of titanium to aluminum in the range from zero to four with a total content of 2-8% influences the resistance of heat-resistant nickel-based alloys to sulfate and chloride melts. When the Ti/Al ratio lies between zero and one, there is marked weakening of sulfide corrosion, but this parameter has little influence on the resistance to chlorides. In order to obtain good mechanical properties and resistance to high-temperature corrosion, heat-resistant alloys should be alloyed with approximately equal amounts of titanium and aluminum.
