Corrosion is a pricey and in all likelihood harmful challenge in lots of industries. the capability software of alternative nanostructured fabrics in corrosion safety, prevention and keep watch over is a topic of accelerating curiosity. This booklet explores the capability use of nanotechnology in corrosion keep an eye on and is split into elements. half one appears on the basics of corrosion habit and the manufacture of nanocrystalline fabrics. Chapters talk about the effect of nanotechnology in lowering corrosion fee, and examine the effect of varied elements together with thermodynamics, kinetics and grain dimension on corrosion behavior.  half offers a chain of case reviews that evaluate oxidation defense utilizing nanocrystalline buildings at numerous temperatures, sol- gel and self-healing nanocoatings and using nanoreservoirs and polymer nanocomposites in corrosion control.

1(b)) are shown. The dotted lines represent oxygen and hydrogen reduction reactions representative of water stability. The pH–potential diagram shows the most stable product formed by a reaction between the metal and the environment. Details of developing Pourbaix plots for numerous metals in different environments are available in Pourbaix (1974). 1 (a) Copper–water and (b) copper–chloride–water Pourbaix plots. The graphs show the different products that can exist when copper is in contact with water in the absence and presence of chloride.

11–15 Intergranular corrosion (IGC) is commonly suggested as the most important mechanism and plays a major role in the corrosion of CG metals. This means that refinement of the grain decreases the corrosion resistance because of the increase in the volume fraction of GBs, despite the fact that it enhances the strength and toughness of metals. 22–30 These conflicts suggest that it is difficult to predict the corrosion behavior of NC metals based on their CG analogs alone, and that there may be a different corrosion mechanism in NC metals.
