Fighting corrosion with stimuli-responsive polymer conjugates

Author affiliations

Abstract

Corrosion is a financial and enviromental plague which leads to the deterioration of our infrastructures. Using corrosion inhibitors at low concentrations in coatings is one effective method for preventing corrosion. Inspired by the development of polymer–drug conjugates, corrosion inhibitors are incorporated in various polymer structures to create novel materials for hindering corrosion. We discuss the strategies to covalently integrate corrosion inhibitors in polymer structures to form polymer–inhibitor conjugates. Inhibitors are conjugated to polymers via non-labile or stimuli-labile linkages to allow the release of the inhibitors upon onset of corrosion. The application and anticorrosion performance of representative polymers are also discussed.
