Abstract
In the research presented in this thesis, corrosion protection films were synthesised and characterised. The films were based on polypyrrole (PPy) coatings doped with combinations of tartrate, oxalate and dodecylbenzene sulfonate (DBS) along with the incorporation of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), and viologen films adsorbed at copper. The corrosion protective properties of these films were studied and compared to the uncoated copper substrate. They were assessed and studied using a combination of cyclic voltammetry, polarisation curves, Tafel analysis, open-circuit potential measurements and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Polypyrrole films were ...
