The main topics include but are not limited to: the mechanism of alloying elements, grain size on interface microstructural regulation, oxide film growth kinetics and corrosion mechanism of nano-metal, corrosion and oxidation of nano-metals at extremely small scale, and development of corrosion resistant nano-alloys with high specific strength. Reveal the nature of the chemical properties of nano-metals, focusing on the understanding of grain size effect, interface effect and quantum effect at atomic levels. Develop nano-structural alloys with high specific strength, excellent corrosion resistance and high resistance against oxidation.
