In this paper potentiodynamic technique, cyclic polarization technique and immersion corrosion method were used to study the corrosion and electrochemical properties of AA5083 alloy in quiescent seawater, the effect of active chlorine on its properties was also studied. The results obtained indicate that the active chlorine has no remarkable impact on the corrosion and electrochemical properties of AA5083 alloy in area of design concentration which range from 0.2 to 0.5 mg/L, and it has favorable influence on the improvement of pitting corrosion resistance. While the pH value of seawater has evident influence on the corrosion resistance of AA5083 alloy.
