The behavior of phosphorous during passivation of weathering steel by protective patina formation
Abstract Although it is well known that the protective patina on weathering steel normally has the two layer structure which consists of an outer crystalline FeOOH layer and an inner amorphous ironExpand

Nanoscopic Mechanism of Protective Rust Formation on Weathering Steel Surfaces
Weathering steel, when exposed outdoors for a few years, forms a protective layer resulting in reduction of the corrosion rate. The state of rusts is fundamental for understanding its mechanism, butExpand
