Corrosion Inhibitors: Fundamental Aspects and Applications in Oil and Gas Industry
IMG - Corrosion Inhibitors: Fundamental Aspects and Applications in Oil and Gas Industry
  • Corrosion is a significant problem in industries.
  • Corrosion inhibitors are one of the finest methods for corrosion control due to ease of application and cost-effectiveness.
  • The salient features of our work on development of new classes of corrosion inhibitors such as bioinspired heterocyclic, biopolymers, ionic liquids and graphene-based materials shall be highlighted.
  • Finally, the application of inhibitors in oil and gas industry shall be elaborated.
