Abstract
Corrosion rates of copper in synthetic water were measured by using an electro-chemical method whose results were verified by coupon tests. The synthetic water was prepared to simulate the concentrations of the principal inorganic anions and cations found in a drinking water supply. Control of the corrosion rate by either chemical reaction, diffusion of reactive species through the oxide film, or diffusion of reactive species through the solution was considered. Experimental conditions included various combinations of temperature (5C, 15C, or 25C) and pH (6.0-8.3).
