The corrosion behavior of the Mg1.85Mm0.15Ni (Mm:Ce_rich mischmetal) alloy modified by electroless Cu coating in different CH3OH_H2O solutions has been investigated by potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. These results showed that the corrosion behavior was improved after electroless Cu. The potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy results showed that the alloy electrode had more promising anti_corrosion behavior after coated in a 40%CH3OH_H2O solution. The values of corrosion current density and electrode reaction resistance were 5.6 mA·cm-2(11.7 mA·cm-2 for uncoated alloy electrode) and 22.25 Ω·cm2 (1.99 Ω·cm2 for the uncoated alloy electrode), respectively.
