To investigate the effect of SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> ion on pitting corrosion behavior of aluminum and aluminum alloy brazing sheets immersion corrosion test and electrochemical measurements were carried out in the solution of lower chloride concentration containing SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> ion. As the SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> ion reduced the anodic and cathodic reaction rate, the pitting corrosion resistance of aluminum increased. The pitting corrosion occurred even in solution containing SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> when the cathodic reaction was high enough. In that case the pitting corrosion rate was much higher than that in the SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> ion free solution. Higher pitting corrosion rate induced by SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> ion was due to the lower pitting corrosion density which was closely related with the thicker oxide film formed on aluminum surface. The probability of pitting corrosion was estimated with the relation between <i>E</i><sub>corr</sub> and <i>E</i><sub>rep</sub> value in anodic polarization measurement in the solution.
