As can be seen from the table, composite film in neutral salt solution corrosion current density is the smallest, and acid or alkali concentration increase that the corrosion current density of the film increased, indicating that acidic and alkaline media of oxide film have damaging effects, and with the increase of the concentration of acid or alkali, destructive also increases.

Generally, neutral salt stress interferes with nutrient cations uptake like K+, Ca2+, Mg2+( Drenovsky and Richards, 2003; Tuna et al., 2007), and alkalinity reduces N availability through the volatilization of mineralized NH4 and decreases P, Ca and Mg solubility besides the above effect (Lajtha and Schlesinger, 1988), which ultimately influence chlorophyll synthesis and contents.
