CHAPTER ONE

1.0   Introduction

Rusting is the corrosion of iron which is the most widely used structural metal. Most of it is used in making steel. The wide range of products made from steel includes all types of vehicles, machinery pipelines, bridges and reinforcing rods and girders for construction purposes. Rusting is due to the electrochemical reaction, it requires the presence of both air i.e oxygen and water. Like the electrochemical cell, electrons are given up from the anode of an iron atom flow (through metal ) to cathode and reduce the oxygen being  dissolved in the water layer to give OH-
