  1. The time-dependent corrosion behavior of pure aluminum (Al) in a chloride-containing environment was investigated using various electrochemical and characterization techniques for up to 336 h. Transmission electron microscopic and secondary ion mass spectroscopic analysis revealed the continuous dissolution of the surface film over the immersion time. In the meantime, the increasing passive oxide thickness resulted in the surface film resistance enhancement over the immersion time, as indicated by the electrochemical impedance spectroscopic analysis. The electrochemical noise measurements showed an increase in the corrosion kinetics with immersion time until 60 h because of the accelerated localized corrosion in the early stage of immersion. However, an inhibition in corrosion kinetics occurred after longer immersion times due to corrosion product deposition inside the pit.
