4 – Multi-functional, Self-healing Coatings For Corrosion Protection: Materials, Design And Processing
Published 2014 · Materials Science
: Sustainable corrosion protection can be provided by highly functional corrosion-resistant multilayer coatings. A tailored design of such coatings requires working out elaborate internal structures and chemical compositions. Therefore, a toolbox for the design of such coatings is provided for the reader. The tools will be used based on fundamental physical phenomena for the design and synthesis of host/guest systems with triggered-release properties and multi-functional coatings. Implementing these physical principles in chemical syntheses can be aided by computer-based simulation. Finally, some of the materials developed in this way in projects carried out in collaboration with partners will be described.
