The absorption and possible reaction paths during corrosion have been systematically identified at the molecular level by us-ing density functional theory calculations. The results show that the co-adsorbed water molecule has a two-fold impact on the corrosive kinetics process. The one is the solvation effect, where water molecule affects the various reactions through ion dipole interaction, without bond fracture and formation. Another is the H-transfer mediator, where the bond of co-adsorbed water molecule breaks and regenerates in order to transfer hydrogen atoms.
