Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Corrosion: Basics and State-of-the-Art

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Professor Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! With considerable expertise in the design, synthesis and characterization of new polymers and nanoscale materials, Prof. Advincula has designed a series of lectures in order to share the latest developments in nanomaterials research in a variety of applications and fields.

Corrosion is a perennial problem that is present everywhere where the thermodynamically favorable process is the creation of rust. Although the mechanism of materials fouling has been understood and is continuously studied, mitigating it has been done in the form of better corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs), coatings, or the outright use of non-metallics. In this webinar, we will examine the basics of corrosion and also methods of mitigating and monitoring it in structures. Questions that will be answered include: What are different classes of corrosion? What are their mechanisms? Is it possible to use better materials with the right cost-performance ratio? How does corrosion impact industries and the GDP of nations?
