Abstract : Originally it was proposed that twelve bottom-working electrode cells be pretreated. The four cells were mounted horizontally (in a temperature-controlled bath 25 C) to prevent any oil-like phases interfering with the surface of the working electrode. The results of experiments carried out of these cells are reported. The construction of an electrochemical cell containing four working electrodes, cut from the same region of an oxidiser tank, was postponed to allow for the remachining of cell bodies and lids for Parts A and E of the proposal. THe effect of oscillating-temperature cycles on the corrosion rate of aluminum in IRFNA has been investigated.
