Description / Abstract:

A comprehensive resource on the modern aspects of corrosion inhibitors and their applications The onset of corrosion looms at the core of all chemical processes. If unchecked, corrosion's wrath poses a severe threat not only to worker safety, but to the environment as well. In this book—an important and unique overview of corrosion inhibition science—new technologies for waging battle against various forms of corrosion are thoroughly explored and examined. Focusing on corrosion inhibition in terms of metal complex formation, Green Corrosion Inhibitors covers basic principles, historical developments, and modern applications of green corrosion inhibitors with a full range of topics that allow students and practicing engineers to promote a safer and more cost-effective work environment. Discussion includes: The application of hard and soft acid base principles Ligand field theory Photochemistry, quantum theory, and Sastri equation, both inorganic and organic The development of green inhibitors and their applications to many metals and their alloys Corrosion chemistry is rapidly changing as it travels a parallel path alongside strict environmental regulations requiring corrosion inhibitors to be environmentally friendly and safe. Because of this new social awareness, there is a dire need for a resource that helps practitioners apply the most current theory in real-world situations. Green Corrosion Inhibitors is that guide, showing that by using a proper inhibitor it is possible to maintain proper protection of materials and improve efficiency, while still remaining environmentally—and fiscally—acceptable.
