About the book

Corrosion is metallic cancer. It is a process of deterioration and consequent loss of solid metallic material through the chemical (such as dry gases, moisture, liquid, microbes, etc.) or electrochemical (like Daniel cell reactions) attack by its environment on its surface. The corrosion process is prolonged and occurs on the surface only. The losses incurred due to corrosion are enormous. The global cost at around 2 to 2.5 billion dollars per annum is spent on it. It cannot be eradicated but can overcome by several methods. The most popular way of its protection is the use of protective coatings/corrosion inhibitors. Renewable resources are also playing an important role to combat corrosion in the form of coatings and inhibitors.

The book describes the types of corrosion, mechanism, and its control through synthetic coatings, renewable resources based polymeric coatings, micro to nano-coating, nano-composite coatings, and nanomaterials for corrosion inhibitors.
