The interaction of two ionic liquids with carbon steel surfaces were studied in absence and presence of gamma-radiation. Both studied ionic liquids were found to corrode the carbon steel. One of the ionic liquids (labelled [P66614]+ [Br]-) was found to produce corrosion products both with and without radiation present. The second ionic liquid (labelled [P66614]+ [NTf2]-) did not corrode the steel in absence of gamma-radiation, but did corrode it in the presence of gamma-radiation.
