Interaction (25–620°C) of aluminum and its alloys with an atmosphere saturated with nitrogen was studied to determine the role played by rare-earth metals in the mechanism by which nitride phases are formed in oxidation of Al + REM alloys in air. The ellipsometric method and Auger electron spectroscopy were used to determine that, under the given experimental conditions, metallic aluminum is subjected to the greatest extent to the nitridation process, which is competing with the oxidation process. The process is initiated by the conversion of the amorphous oxide film to γ-Al2O3. The surface of Al + REM alloys interacts with nitrogen at the outer part of the oxide layer. The rare-earth metal actively reacts with impurity oxygen present in the atmosphere under study and hinders formation of nitride/oxynitride layers.
