Electrochemical and weight loss measurements can determine the corrosion of titanium exposed to hot alkaline hydrogen peroxide solutions. The corrosion depends on pH and hydrogen peroxide concentration. It is possible to establish a
critical pH value by keeping hydrogen peroxide concentration constant. A hydrogen peroxide anion is the entity responsible for corrosive attack on titanium. This anion is only stable in alkaline hydrogen peroxide solutions.
