Abstract : Predict how corrosion evolves for centuries in iron materials is decisive as weil in nuclear field in order to evaluate the nuclear waste containers thiekness and in heritage for conservation of metal items. Our goal is to describe the Corrosion Product Layers (CPLs) which grew up under natural conditions in order to understand atmospherie corrosion mechanisms and the role of the layer in those phenomena. For that, we decide to find correlations between minor chemieal elements and mineralogical compositions localization in iron CPLs. For data collection, we use Raman spectroscopy and MEB-EDS with a micrometric resolution. Ferrihydrite (FeOOH, nH20) is one of the most reactive oxidized phases of iron whieh can see its reactivity be inhibited by adsorption of phosphorus. On a little area of cross section of a clamp coming from a French Cathedral, one shows there are correlations between phosphorus and ferrihydrite [1] in iron CPLs. ln order to check this observation, we propose to acquire, on large areas, Raman and MEB-EDS hyperspectral images. By a self-made program in Python, those data are analyzed by multiway analysis like Principal Component Analysis (PCA) [2). After pretreatments following by a PCA, we localize minor chemical elements (Mg, P, CI) and phases in CPL by projecting data on principal components. We are trying to quantify these observations and developing a multiblock analysis to ensure there are correlations between minors elements and specifie phases in CPLs.
