About the book

The book "Corrosion" aims to meet the long-awaited demands in the field of corrosion. Corrosion is part and parcel of life in the global world today. We use different forms of metals for different applications in our daily lives. And if a metal is there, corrosion will take place by its reaction with the current environment. To this date, we do not have an effective method to completely stop corrosion. All the available methods can mitigate, delay the corrosion process, but cannot fully stop it. So, to achieve the complete stoppage of corrosion research is being carried out worldwide with a determination to find a remedy. This book welcomes current research in various fields. The book aims to help students, academicians and industrialists to find the basics and updated information in the field of corrosion. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in patient safety, featuring an easy-to-follow, vignette-based format that focuses on the most important evidence-based developments in this critically important area.
