Abstract The oxide films formed on iron-chromium alloys in superheated steam have been investigated using a variety of microanalytical techniques, most notably electron energy loss spectroscopy. The addition of boron dopants leads to the rapid formation of a microcrystalline film of composition (Cr) x B 1}-x 2 O 3,which resists further oxidation. Analysis of the near-edge structures associated with each core-loss edge after different oxidation times allows us to postulate various mechanisms for the observed behavior.
