Zirconium alloys are widely used as cladding materials employed to contain the fission fuel in nuclear power plants. A limiting factor for fuel longevity is the corrosion property of the zirconium alloys. In the reactor, the main corrodent is water. The oxide forms thermodynamically during hydrogen evolution. Due to the corrosion mechanism, a fraction of the hydrogen is transferred to the alloy. It has long been known that the alloying elements actually control the hydrogen pick-up fraction,doi:10.1039/c3ra42941e fatcat:4zk34gfydffbjlpdv6ijrjujwi
