3.1 Introduction

Because of the high reactivities of metals in most gas and liquid environments, pure metallic forms of most metals are not found in nature but exist in the forms of oxides or minerals. Consequently, it is of technological and scientific importance both to know how to produce the metallic material and to understand the chemical interactions of man-made metals and alloys with the many environments in which they are now used.

The different ways in which metals interact ...
