From the effects of slowly oxidizing steel on infrastructure and pipelines, to hydrogen embrittlement in nuclear reactors and chemical plants, to rust in the automotive industry, corrosion has a tremendous impact on society. In fact, the annual global cost of corrosion has been estimated to be US$2.5 trillion [1].

Hence incremental improvements in the understanding and management of corrosion are of considerable value. Although...
