Magnesium alloys have emerged as potential structural materials with all capabilities to even replace close contenders; aluminium alloys in weight-critical applications. High susceptibility to corrosion being the only limitation, corrosion of magnesium alloys continues to gather much attention among the material scientists worldwide. ZE41 is one such alloy of magnesium which is increasingly gaining importance as automobile and aerospace material. In the present study the influence of the medium pH and sulfate ion concentrations on the corrosion behavior of magnesium alloy ZE41 has been investigated using electrochemical techniques like the Tafel extrapolation and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The tests have been carried out in a range of conditions, with gradually varying pH and sulfate ion concentration. The morphology and composition of the corroded alloy surface have been determined by the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersion X-ray (EDX) analysis, respectively. The recorded results reflect a trend of a higher corrosion rate associated with a higher sulfate concentration at each pH and with a lower pH at each sulfate concentration.
