Nanostructured and Superhydrophobic Coatings Against Corrosion

The understanding and use of nanostructuring enable the utilization of nanomaterials and their ordering to achieve a desired property. This talk will summarize our results and describe the principles of nanostructuring and the right materials to achieve superior properties.

The use of nanostructured materials enable the utilization of nanomaterials and their ordering in order to achieve a desired property or a synergistic effect in which the percolation threshold is met with the right ordering or orientation of the nanomaterials. In the case of nanoclays nanotubes and graphene this can be achieved by forming a highly networked structure or by flat orientation of the platelets. In our work nanostructuring can be achieved by a heirarchy of roughness or the mimicking of lotus leaf structure. This involves the use of conducting polymers and stimuli-responsive polymers that result in a superhydrophobic wetting behavior. This in turn results in a high corrosion resistance as evidenced by salt immersion tests polarization curves and EIS measurements. This talk will summarize our results and describe the principles of nanostructuring and the right materials to achieve superior properties.

Key words: nanomaterials, superhydrophobic coatings, electrochemical, corrosion, nanostructuring.
