Stainless steel resists corrosion such as rust much better than other metals like iron, as with this rusty bolt. Corrosion resistance is a rare property for most alloys as they’re usually designed for other mechanical properties, but Arizona State University Professor Karl Sieradzki and a multidisciplinary, multi-university team developed a theory to help materials scientists design better alloys that can resist corrosion.
