It is known that the Moessbauer parameters (isomeric displacement, quadrupolar splitting) of the tin-bismuth alloy and tin oxide greatly differ. Consequently, the process of oxidation of the tin-bismuth alloy coating may be examined using Moessbauer spectroscopy. This work shows that this method can be used to determine the composition and growth of corrosion products. The investigations were carried out on specimens of brass electroplated with a tin-bismuth alloy. The bismuth content was 2%.
