The activity of water is an important, but often underappreciated, aspect of localized corrosion and Environmentally Assisted Cracking (EAC). The effect of water activity in aqueous systems is difficult to study because of the ubiquity of water. The localized corrosion and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance of stainless steels in methanolic environments are examined in this paper from the perspective of the role of water activity. The SCC of stainless steels in methanolic environments occur in conjunction with localized corrosion. The effect of environmental chemistry in terms of water and chloride concentration on the SCC of stainless steels is presented. The localized corrosion and SCC became less severe in methanolic solutions with the addition of water and more severe with the increase in chloride concentration.
