In the present work, an assessment of the corrosion behavior of mild steel in the presence of an organic corrosion inhibitor loaded into hybrid composite materials is performed. Hybrid organic–inorganic nanocontainers based on cerium and titanium oxides were fabricated via a combination of radical polymerization together with the coprecipitation method and sol-gel technique. The corrosion inhibition role of these hybrid materials loaded with an inhibitor is considered. A set of characterization assays addressing morphology, composition and structural aspects of the exposed steels is illustrated, along with electrochemical evaluations. The results reveal enhanced stimuli responsive anticorrosion ability of the produced hybrid materials. Furthermore, upon corrosion, new compounds are formed onto the exposed areas of the treated metals. The conducted experiments shed light on the corrosion mechanisms for steel alloys as well as the actuation of the fabricated composite materials, paving the way for future developments in this area.
