Electrochemical Potentials

In electrochemistry, the electrochemical potential, , sometimes abbreviated to ECP, is a thermodynamic measure that combines the concepts of energy stored in the form of chemical potential and electrostatics. Electrochemical potential is expressed in the unit of J/mol. -- Wikipedia

This table presents the electrochemical potential difference (in mV) for pairs of common metal alloys, when in the presence of water with 2% salt content.
