Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to study the effect of temperature on the process and kinetic parameters of the hydrogen evolution reaction of X80 under cathodic protection (CP) in 3.5% NaCl solution.

Design/methodology/approach

Potentiodynamic polarization combined with the hydrogen permeation test is used to analyze the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) process and the rate-determining step for which is diagnosed through the electrochemical impedance spectrum method. Then, the influence of temperature on kinetic parameters of HER can be known from the results obtained by using the Iver-Pickering-Zamenzadeh model for data analysis.

Findings

The results show that the HER proceeds through Volmer–Tafel route with the Volmer reaction acting as the rate-controlling step; Increasing temperature gives a higher activity of the HER on X80, it also accelerates the hydrogen desorption and diffusion of hydrogen into the metal.

Originality/value

There exist few studies on the topic of how temperature affects the HER process. It is imperative to conduct a relevant study to give some instruction in cathodic protection system design and this paper fulfills this need.
