This book is a condensed summary of conjugated polymer-based corrosion resistant composite systems. It includes introduction of corrosion, their classification and measurement, theory of conjugated polymers and their composites, synthesis/designing of polymer composites, investigation and assessment of their corrosion resistance and elaborate discussion on the various corrosion testing techniques. It also covers the preparation of smart coatings of conjugated polymers which can be used for preventing iron corrosion in hostile environmental conditions.
