Technical Paper -
This work presents an effective anticorrosive coating for the industrially important aluminum alloy, AA2024-T3. The protective coating was designed by dispersing mesoporous silica nanocontainers, loaded with the nontoxic corrosion inhibitor, 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, in a hybrid sol–gel (SiOx/ZrOx) layer. The concentration of the embedded nanocontainers was varied (0.04–1.7 wt %) to ascertain the...
