Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit your research work to our Special Issue “Advances in polymer-based materials for corrosion protection.” The serious consequences of metallic corrosion have become a problem of worldwide significance. The common strategy to protect metallic substrates against corrosion is the application of protective organic coatings and corrosion inhibitors. However, the traditional technologies are often not ideal for corrosion protection of the base metal due to their own material properties and process limitations, and a considerable part of these methods contain toxic substances such as lead or chromate, which poses the risk of environmental pollution during the preparation process. Therefore, the development of new high corrosion-resistant materials and their green preparation technology has become one of the pursued goals in the field of metal corrosion and protection.

The polymer materials, which can act as the barrier layer preventing the contact of water and corrosive species with the metallic substrate, have been the most popular and effective method to protect the metals from corrosion. So far, the polymer-based anticorrosion materials and technologies have already attracted more and more attention because of their special and excellent protective properties. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experimental and computational developments in the research field of polymer-based materials for corrosion protection, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading scientists around the world.

The manuscript can be submitted now or up until the deadline and will be published on an ongoing basis. I would greatly appreciate your contribution to this Special Issue.

In present study, novel nitrogen doped carbon dots (NCDs) are synthesized using a green material—dopamine—as a precursor and studied as corrosion inhibitors for Q235 carbon steel in 1 M HCl solution. According to the electrochemical results, it is found that NCDs acting as a mixed-type corrosion inhibitor can effectively retard the acid corrosion of carbon steel, and their inhibition efficiency increases with the concentration increasing from 50 to 400 ppm. The highest inhibition efficiency is 96.1% in the presence of 400 ppm NCDs at room temperature. Additionally, the adsorption of NCDs obeys the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. In addition, weight loss results show that the inhibition efficiency in the presence of 400 ppm NCDs increases with prolonged exposure time and rising temperature (298–328 K), owing to the strong adsorption of NCDs on the steel surface, and the η value is 92.2% at 60 h of immersion and 86.2%, 89.1%, 90.6% and 92.9% at 298, 308, 318 and 328 K, respectively. Surface analysis by scanning electron microscope (SEM), laser scanning confocal microscope (LSCM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) further proves the formation of a protective NCD film on the steel surface.

Biologically derived polymers are a very attractive subject for investigation, due to the strict pro-ecological requirements imposed by developed countries, including zero-waste and zero-carbon policies as well as volatile organic compound (VOC) limits. Synthesis of biologically-derived polyesters from natural rosin and bio-diols, showing softening temperatures suitable for application in VOC-free paints and varnishes, was performed to create a desired, future commercial product, that meet the aforementioned requirements regarding VOC and elimination of petroleum-based raw materials. Prepared polymers were used in the formulation of coating materials whose properties: cross-linking behavior, glass transition temperature, thermal stability, storage modulus, hardness, cupping resistance, adhesion, chemical resistance, gloss, haze, color, and anti-corrosive behavior in the salt chamber were investigated and discussed. As a result, coatings with prepared bio-polyesters contained over 80 wt.% of natural resources and showed competitive/better properties than petroleum-based references. They can be applied in the prototyping of “green” powder paints for the protection of steel substrates from corrosion and aggressive solvents. Full article
