Synopsis: The conservation of metallic archaeological and historic artefacts is a major challenge whether they are ancient bronzes or relics of our more recent industrial past. Based on the work of Working Party 21 Corrosion of Archaeological and Historical Artefacts within the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC), this important book summarises key recent research on analytical techniques, understanding corrosion processes and preventing the corrosion of cultural heritage metallic artefacts.

Key Features: summarises key research on analytical techniques for measuring and analysing corrosion processes; provides detailed understanding of corrosion processes and corrosion prevention; discusses on-site monitoring techniques.

Contents: Introduction: Conservation versus laboratory investigation in the preservation of metallic heritage artefacts. Part 1 Conservation issues: Past, present, future: Conservation, corrosion science and evidence-based preservation strategies for metallic heritage artefacts; Atmospheric corrosion of heritage metallic artefacts: Processes and prevention. Part 2 Analytical techniques for the study of cultural heritage corrosion: Analytical techniques for the study of corrosion of metallic heritage artefacts: From micrometer to nanometer scales; The use of metallographic and metallurgical investigation methods in the preservation of metallic heritage artefacts; Analysis of corroded metallic heritage artefacts using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS); Electrochemical measurements in the conservation of metallic heritage artefacts: An overview; Electrochemical analysis of metallic heritage artefacts: Time-lapse spectroelectrochemical techniques; Electrochemical analysis of metallic heritage artefacts: Voltammetry of microparticles (VMP). Part 3 Specific alteration processes: Artistic patinas on ancient bronze statues; Ancient silver artefacts: Corrosion processes and preservation strategies; Underwater corrosion of metallic heritage artefacts; Long term anoxic corrosion of iron; Reactivity studies of atmospheric corrosion of heritage iron artefacts; Atmospheric corrosion of historic industrial structures. Part 4 On-site monitoring: Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) for the in situ analysis of metallic heritage artefacts; Oxygen monitoring in the corrosion and preservation of metallic heritage artefacts; Issues in environmental monitoring of metallic heritage artefacts. Part 5 Protection mediums, methods and strategies: Alkaline desalination techniques for archaeological iron; The use of subcritical fluids for the stabilisation of archaeological iron: An overview; Monitoring, modelling and prediction of corrosion rates of historic iron shipwrecks; The role of standards in conservation methods for metals in cultural heritage; Coatings including carboxylates for the preservation of metallic heritage artefacts; Sol-gel coatings for the preservation of metallic heritage artefacts; Plasma treatments for the cleaning and preservation of metallic heritage artefacts; Corrosion inhibitors for the preservation of metallic heritage artefacts.
