To improve the corrosion performance of magnesium alloys in the marine environment, the MAO, MAO–Cu2CO3(OH)2·H2O and MAO–Cu2P2O7 ceramic coatings were deposited on AZ91D magnesium alloys in basic electrolyte and the discoloration mechanism of the Cu-doped MAO coatings and the corrosion behavior of the three MAO coatings in the artificial seawater solution were investigated by SEM, EDS and XPS. The results indicated that the formation and discoloration mechanism of the brown MAO ceramic coatings were attributable to the formation of Cu2O in the coatings. Though the three MAO coatings had a certain protective effect against the corrosion of AZ91D substrate in the artificial seawater, the distinctive stratification phenomenon was found on the MAO–Cu2P2O7 coated sample and the corrosion model of the MAO–Cu2P2O7 coatings in the immersion experiment was established. Therefore, the brown Cu-doped MAO coatings were speculated to significantly reduce the risk of the magnesium parts in marine environments. View Full-Text
