Abstract: The corrosion of Ag contaminated with NaCl particles in gaseous environments containing humidity and ozone was investigated. In particular, the effects of relative humidity and UV light illumination were quantitatively analyzed using a coulometric reduction technique. The atmospheric corrosion of Ag was greatly accelerated in the presence of ozone and UV light. Unlike bare Ag (i.e., with no NaCl particles on the surface), Ag with NaCl exhibited fast corrosion even in the dark, with no UV in the presence of ozone. Samples exposed to different outdoor environments and samples exposed in a salt spray chamber were studied for comparison. Ag corroded at extremely low rates in a salt spray chamber partly because of the combined absence of light and oxidizing agents such as ozone.
