Abstract

Use of electroactive polymer (EAP) coatings for corrosion protection has been discussed for many years. Quite a number of possible protection mechanisms are proposed, of which the possible passivation of the metal through the high potential of redox EAP such as polyaniline is maybe the most frequently stated. However, introducing the conjugated oligoaniline into the EAP backbones for using anticorrosive coatings are rarely discussed.

This chapter focuses on the introduction to the anticorrosive properties ...
