Could someone help me describe the influence that non-standard conditions have on corrosion in terms of standard electrode potentials. Any help would be great, even a link would be appreciated.

Electrode potental calculations show the possibility of reaction under standard conditions, 1 atmosphere, 1.0 mol dm-3 concentrations.

But using the Nernst equation you can see that the value of the electrode potential depends on concentrations and temperature and that non-spontaneous processes may become feasible under non-standard conditions.

Corrosion is a redox process where the metal gets oxidised and something in the environment (usually oxygen) gets reduced.
