Interests: corrosion inhibition; smart coatings; protection films; surface science; electrochemical study; reinforced concrete; environmental corrosion
This Special Issue is focused on the recent developments and current research on corrosion inhibition and surface protection films in the field of coatings. Nowadays, society demands innovative corrosion prevention strategies that combine good corrosion protection along with environmentally friendly solutions that offer and guarantee a long-lasting service lifetime. To this end, different approaches have been researched, including smart corrosion inhibitors and coatings, controlled release corrosion inhibitors, superhydrophobic films and coatings, new sealing processes, and thermal spray coatings, among others. Special emphasis will be placed on advanced electrochemical techniques for coating characterization.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- corrosion inhibitors;
- controlled corrosion release;
- microencapsulated corrosion inhibitors;
- smart coatings;
- superhydrophobic films and coatings;
- new coating strategies;
- sealing processes and films;
- thermal spray coatings;
- advanced electrochemical techniques for coating characterization.
