Title Smart Coatings II
Author Theodore Provder and Jamil Baghdachi
Publisher American Chemical Society
Smart Coatings II begins with the first major section that deals with bioactive coatings that are antibacterial and antifouling, which are achieved with a range of chemistries and morphologies. The second section deals with coatings making use of nanotechnology as the enabling technology. These coatings include coatings made from self-assembling smart nanoparticles, organic-inorganic nanocomposite coatings, and effects of alumina and silica nanoparticles on clear coatings. The last section of the book deals with novel coatings including biocatalytic coatings, superhydrophobic coatings, conducting polymers for intelligent corrosion protection, and protection of steel and aluminum by polyaniline and polyphenylene ether coatings.
This book will encourage scientific and technological investigators to expand knowledge and technology in this field as well as to apply that knowledge to commercially relevant coatings systems.
