    Abstract

    An electrochemical technique is described for estimating the tendency of titanium to absorb hydrogen on prolonged exposure to caustic solutions. Unalloyed titanium appears to be quite resistant. A possibility of localized hydrogen absorption and corrosion due to iron contamination is described. Ways of avoiding this problem are suggested.
