A conductive plastic fights corrosion

Abstract:
Corrosion is the process by which a material breaks down due to reactions with its surroundings, usually by means of oxidation. It poses great problems to our society, making it the subject of investigation for many research groups, which dedicate great efforts to find means to prevent or control this process. The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid has tested a new protection technique that consists of the electrodeposition of a conductive polymer (polypyrrole) over the surface of a material like copper that is easily oxidized.
