Research and Markets has included a new book titled ‘Corrosion Protection and Control Using Nanomaterials’ from Woodhead Publishing to its offering.

The potential application of various nanomaterials in corrosion protection and control is a topic of increasing interest. The new book investigates the potential application of nanotechnology in controlling corrosion, a cost-consuming and potentially harmful issue in most of the industries.

The book comprises two parts, wherein part one describes the basics of corrosion behavior and the production of nanocrystalline materials, while part two features several case studies pertaining to the use of nanomaterials in controlling corrosion.

Chapters cover nanotechnology’s impact in decreasing corrosion cost and explore the impact of a number of factors such as grain size, kinetics and thermodynamics on the corrosion behavior of nanomaterials. They also discuss the electrodeposition process and electrodeposited nanocrystalline materials’ corrosion behavior. They review protection through oxidation of nanocrystalline structures at different temperatures, and also describe the application of polymer nanocomposites, nanoreservoirs, and self-healing and sol-gel nanocoatings in corrosion control.

The comprehensive book is a valuable resource for students exploring corrosion protection and control provided by nanomaterials and for engineers and scientists working with nanomaterials in a broad array of industries such as chemical engineering, automotive and aerospace.

Key topics covered in the report include the impact of nanotechnology in reducing corrosion cost, corrosion and nanomaterials: thermodynamic and kinetic factors; understanding the corrosion resistance of nanocrystalline materials: the influence of grain size; understanding the corrosion resistance of nanocrystalline materials: electrochemical influences; electrodeposition: the versatile technique for nanomaterials; moderate temperature oxidation protection using nanocrystalline structures; high temperature oxidation protection using nanocrystalline coatings; nanocoatings to improve the tribocorrosion performance of materials; self-healing nanocoatings for corrosion control; the use of nanoreservoirs in corrosion protection coatings; nanoparticle-based corrosion inhibitors and self-assembled monolayers; sol-gel nanocoatings for corrosion protection; polymer nanocomposites in corrosion control; nanocoatings for corrosion protection of aerospace alloys; and nanoscience and biomaterial corrosion control.
