Silicon
Sulfur

Thanks in advance
Definitely a good bit out of my league as most of those are things we do not deal with.

That said, I know sulfur is very bad with any metal!

You seem to have an interest in details. This website offers some resources on metals and corrosion...may not cover a lot of what you are interested in but it is a starting place to browse for some stuff - NACE-National Association of Corrosion Engineers: http://events.nace.org/library/libraryindex.asp
