AB - While metal components immersed in oil-based lubricants suffer from corrosion, very few studies investigate such phenomenon. As water-in-oil nanoemulsions can be formed intentionally and accidently in oil lubricants, they were used as model systems in this corrosion study to investigate the effect of surface topography on corrosion of Aluminium. The initiation sites of corrosion were identified using fluorescence imaging with a resolution of 1 micrometer. It shows for the first time metal corrodes in oil-based nanoemulsion. It was found that corrosion preferentially occurred at regions with surface irregularity. The corrosion mechanisms are discussed using percolation theory and charge transfer in surfactant networks of semi-dilute micelle solutions.
