This paper reports a study of the influence of surface S on the adsorption of water vapor and liquid on an 18% Cr, 8% Ni austenitic stainless steel at room temperature. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements of the increase of O as a function of water exposure indicate that S inhibits water vapor uptake in direct relation to the amount of S on the surface, up to coverages =0.8 monolayer.
