Pitting corrosion is an insidious localized form of corrosion causing much devastating destruction to structural members such as stainless steel in chloride environment. This paper gives a review of the mechanism processes of pitting, stages, factors facilitating pitting corrosion, techniques of evaluating pitting corrosion and some research work on pitting corrosion. The rudimentary knowledge of the mechanisms of pitting corrosion from this work will be of assistance to the selection process, specification and the use of stainless steels and other structural members.
