Depassivation of steel to form green rust occurs when the ratio of concentration of chloride ions to hydroxide ions is greater than 1. Therefore, rebar in concrete, for example, may be protected from green rust if the alkalinity of the concrete is high enough.
There is a natural mineral which is the equivalent to green rust called fougerite. Fougerite is a blue-green to blue-gray clay mineral found in certain wooded regions of France. The iron hydroxide is believed to give rise to other related minerals. The carbonate and sulfate forms of green rust have been identified as by-products of ferric oxyhydoxide reduction in iron-reducing bacteria. For example, Shewanella putrefaciens produces hexagonal green rust crystals.
Scientists speculate green rust formation by bacteria occurs naturally in aquifers and wet soil.
But this book is awful. The main character behaves with such arrant foolishness that it is a miracle that she ever managed to walk out the door in the morning without tripping over. The supposed detective misses the most obvious clues and blunders around like an utter oaf. And the storyline is pretty far fetched anyway. Don't waste your time. A real shame as other books by this author that I have read were very good indeed. Rust never sleeps! This was great fun to read. German anger over their loss in the Great War causes a bold attempt at early biological warfare.
A mad German scientist plots the destruction of Europe and the US wjile an intrepid American detective and a damsal in distress struggle to thwart his plan. Interesting take on biological warfare. Takes a while to get going, and the plot is kind of pbvious -- but still a good read Sep 13, Scilla rated it liked it. The plot is a little farfetched as are most of Wallace's books, but it is a good read.
It begins with the murder of a very rich man who has just written his will leaving his money to his poor niece who is not supposed to know about the legacy until the day she is married to prevent treasure seekers.

The Green Rust
As usual in Wallace novels, there is a handsome detective Mr. Beale who rescues a beautiful girl Olivia Cresswell , and they fall in love. The German doctor Van Heerden is the perfect villain.

When you want decently-written, occasionally original but mostly as predictable as can be, adventure stories, you want Edgar Wallace.
And since he wrote about a million books, you'll never run out! Jun 08, Kimbolimbo rated it liked it Shelves: read-in I believe that John Christopher must have read this book before writing his novel, No Blade of Grass. I consider this book to be the prequel to No Blade of Grass.
Edgar Wallace - The Green Rust
So as you can imagine, I enjoyed reading this thriller even though the dialogue was ridiculous and it was very annoying that every bad person and good guy kept revealing their hand of cards each time they thought they had succeeded only to have the rug pulled out from beneath their feet. Jul 04, Esther rated it really liked it. Librivox audio edition I love Edgar Wallace, his fantastical plots and predictable but passionate heroes. They are great to listen to while I'm at work weaving.
I had listened to all of the canon on Librivox and I'm glad to see they have added a few more. This book has a great "McGuffin" of the green rust that will destroy all the corn crops of the world, throwing economies into chaos, almost like a Dr No or other James Bond villian. The book is dated with a strong anti-German bias.
Green rust and iron
What looks at first like it is going to a fairly straightforward murder mystery, opens up into story of biological terrorism with a plot to destroy the world's grain harvest, with a dastardly German it's an Edgar Wallace book, of course the German's dastardly behind it all. Wallace is better a the set up than seeing the narrative trough, but still it's a nice Edgar Wallace yarn, one of his best.
Sep 03, Abbie rated it really liked it. I listened to a great audio recording from Librivox. The Green Rust kept me entertained while I weeded the garden and harvested vegetables. I enjoyed the adventures very much. I am compelled to listen to more audio books by this very prolific author.
Thank you again Librivox and the iPod Shuffle for all you do to enliven my daily activities and chores. Mar 23, Julie Davis rated it it was ok. I'm a big fan of Edgar Wallace who at one time was one of the most popular British mystery writers. This is not one of his best although it was enjoyable enough. View all 11 comments. Apr 12, Judy rated it liked it. I like this one but not as much as his others. A tale of national terrorism, written some time after WW1, but it seemed too farfetched to me. It was a free Kindle download and I really liked all the others by Wallace that I have read.
This one just didn't appeal as much. I can recommend the others without restraint; I don't think I will recommend this one. Dec 18, Marts Thinker rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics.
