An aerosol-assisted chemical vapor method leading to iron sulfide scales of varying phases and morphologies by reaction of pipeline steels with sulfur compounds has been developed. This chemical vapor reaction methodology is useful for generating model iron sulfide scales pertinent to the interaction of sour crude oil with piplelines used in the oil and gas industry.
