Abstract

This study investigates the film formation of the ionic liquid-Mg alloy system using trihexyl(tetradecyl)phosphonium bis 2, 4, 4- trimethylpentylphopshinate (P 6,6,6,14( iC 8) 2PO 2) ionic liquid with AZ31 magnesium alloy during oxidation. Oxidation was performed at relatively low voltages (<V vs. OCP of AZ31) using both constant-voltage and constant-current techniques. Anodic films were produced in conditions of varying applied voltage, current density, time and temperature. Films formed at a constant voltage of 3 V were highly porous, and inhomogeneous unless treated at an elevated temperature of 50°C. These films provided no improvement in corrosion resistance over the control. Comparatively, anodising AZ31 to a final voltage of 18 V at 0.01 mA/cm 2 in ionic liquid resulted in a reduction in microgalvanic corrosion at cathodic sites. The preliminary results suggest that the ionic liquid solution may be a possible candidate as an anodising electrolyte.
