Green Corrosion Inhibitors : Theory and Practice, Hardback Book

Green Corrosion Inhibitors : Theory and Practice Hardback

Part of the Wiley Series in Corrosion series


A book to cover developments in corrosion inhibitors is long overdue.

This has been addressed by Dr Sastri in a book which presents fundamental aspects of corrosion inhibition, historical developments and the industrial applications of inhibitors.

The book deals with the electrochemical principles and chemical aspects of corrosion inhibition, such as stability of metal complexes, the Hammett equation, hard and soft acid and base principle, quantum chemical aspects and Hansch' s model and also with the various surface analysis techniques, e.g.

XPS, Auger, SIMS and Raman spectroscopy, that are used in industry for corrosion inhibition.

The applications of corrosion inhibition are wide ranging.

Examples given in this book include: oil and gas wells, petrochemical plants, steel reinforced cement, water cooling systems, and many more.

The final chapters discuss economic and environmental considerations which are now of prime importance.

The book is written for researchers in academia and industry, practicing corrosion engineers and students of materials science, engineering and applied chemistry.
