Polymeric Materials in Corrosion Inhibition: Fundamentals and Applications brings together the very latest information and techniques in the preparation and application of a broad range of polymeric materials as corrosion inhibitors in diverse corrosive environments. Sections introduce the fundamentals of polymeric materials, corrosion and corrosion inhibitors and include methodical coverage of polymers as corrosion inhibitors, with separate sections for natural and synthetic polymers. Each chapter guides the reader through the synthesis, properties and application of a specific polymer for corrosion inhibition, including an analysis of advantages and disadvantages and guidance on methods for improved performance. Final chapter cover other important aspects and developments, including adsorption mechanisms, quantum chemical calculations, molecular dynamics and simulations. This is a valuable reference for researchers and advanced students across a range of disciplines, including polymer science, corrosion, electrochemistry, materials science, chemical engineering, and petroleum engineering.
