The aim of this book is to produce a body of knowledge on the theory and practice of corrosion inhibition so it can be used in the selection of corrosion inhibitors, to prevent and/or minimize corrosion in natural environments and industrial facilities.

Corrosion is a pernicious phenomenon that appears in engineering materials, infrastructure assets, and industrial equipment exposed to the atmosphere, water, and soil. The corrosion is the major cause of deterioration of concrete structures and several methods of protection and repair have been developed to increase the durability of such structures. Corrosion inhibitors, chemical substances that reduce the corrosion rate, have been widely used, both for prevention and correction.
Corrosion inhibitors are employed in different forms such as emitters, pellets, powders, films, paints, aerosols, and aqueous and solvent solutions, depending on their chemical composition: organic or inorganic. They are impregnated on papers or plastics; closed in pouches and sachets; or added to coatings and paints to form a barrier against the attack of corrosive agents. They are employed in many industries: automotive, offshore/ onshore, water, military, marine, manufacture, oil and gas, electronics, and concrete structures.
A special group of corrosion inhibitors are extracted from vegetables or derived from industrial vegetable wastes, which are related to the advanced field of “Green Chemistry.” The use of corrosion inhibitors has expanded rapidly in the last decades, and is frequently mentioned in the relevant literature. Inhibitors are classified according to their method of application, their mechanism of protection and chemical composition. It is very important to know the different types of inhibitors for correct use, thus increasing the life span of reinforced concrete structures.
Students, scholars and researchers from a wide variety of fields who are interested in topic will find this book illuminating and useful.
