Polymer Synthesis, Corrosion, and Electrochemical Tests in Lab D-0115
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): Aiken, South Carolina
Office(s): Environmental Management, Savannah River Operations Office
This activity covers activities in Lab D-0115 related to corrosion testing and synthesis of polymeric membranes. Corrosion testing in the form of coupon exposure and electrochemical tests are performed which may include aqueous electrolytes, acids, bases, and/or ionic liquids. These experiments may be conducted at elevated temperatures and in the presence of fluid flow. The activities related to the synthesis of ionically conducting polymeric membranes will form polymer, gel, and other solid support structures which incorporate ionic liquid components. These membranes or gels will be tested for mechanical integrity, and chemical and electrochemical properties.
