Abstract : Major findings in four areas were summarized: (1) application of Mossbauer spectroscopy to the study of corrosion; (2) the osication of iron as studied by conversion-electron Mossbauer spectroscopy; (3) Mossbauer spectroscopic studies in situ of the passive film on cobalt; and (4) non-destructive monitoring by Mossbauer spectroscopy of the rate of corrosion of coated metal at the metal-polymer interface.
