passivation potential

in electrochemical corrosion
The most negative @E01956@ at which the passivating @F02366@ is formed. The passivation potential is equal to or more positive than the equilibrium potential of formation of the phase constituting the @F02366@. Usually, the @C01358@ goes through a maximum at the passivation potential.
