This book covers corrosion protection of metals and alloys using graphene and biopolymer composites, which currently represent the greener alternatives to anti-corrosive coatings. Several investigations (electrochemical, engineering, and surface) have been carried out to better understand the corrosion process in metals and alloys, particularly steel, and its control. The flexibility of graphene film, or its oxide, and its variability to combine has a significant impact in corrosion protection. Nanocomposites of graphene provide an eco-friendly, strong, and efficient inhibitor of corrosion, and biopolymers and organic films also provide promising and enhanced corrosion resistant technology.
