Abstract

"Interest is growing in potential applications of intrinsically conducting polymers (ICPs). Polyaniline is one of the most interesting due to its unique properties and high thermal stability. One of the applications identified for polyaniline is its use as a corrosion inhibitor on metals. This study evaluates the use of Panda, (commercial polyaniline obtained from Monsanto) as well as Nitto, (commercial polyaniline obtained from Japanese based company, Nitto) as a corrosion inhibitor on aircraft grade aluminum. Testing was performed in neutral salt spray following ASTM(American standard testing methods) B117. Good corrosion protection was observed with formulations involving sebacic acid and a University of Missouri-Rolla E-coat which combined to give an ASTM rating of 9+ for corrosion resistance"--Abstract, page iii.
