Abstract:

SUMMARY Three types of nanotechnology-based passive and smart barrier coatings for corrosion protection discussed 1 Plasma-deposited conducting carbon polymer PPN can be used to protect small device or engine components and has been demonstrated to protect PEM fuel cell current collecting bipolar metal plates 2 Carbon nanotube pintslinks can form smart protective coatings via p-n junction layers which can electrically sense coating damage due to corrosion 3 semiconducting, thermochromic polydiacetylene paints undergo irreversible color changes which can become reversible in the presence of chemical reactions induced by corrosion.
