  • Abstract

    Anodization of zircaloy-4 in 0.1 M sodium bisulphite has been carried out. Kinetics of anodic oxidation of zircaloy-4 has been studied at a constant current density of 8 mA.cm-2 and at room temperature. The plots of formation voltage vs. time, reciprocal capacitance vs. time and reciprocal capacitance vs. Formation voltage were drawn. From these plots, formation rate, current efficiency and differential field were calculated. The addition of solvent (Ethylene glycol) showed better kinetic results. For 20, 40, 60 and 80% aquo-glycolic media, the dielectric constant values are low leading to the marked improvement in the kinetics.
