Tubule Nanocontainers for Corrosion Inhibitors

Description :  

The focus of this proposed research is the exploitation of the properties of Halloysite clay nanotubes for the production of efficient and environmentally friendly nanocontainers for corrosion inhibition. Through collaborations with Louisiana Tech, the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces and Grambling State University, the investigators aim to (1) examine the loading mechanisms for sustained anticorrosion chemical release, (2) develop stoppers for nanotube openings, (3) determine optimum nanotube/stopper formulations for maximum sustained release, (3) optimize of Halloysite surface modifications and nanocontainer protection, and (4) scale up production of the nanocontainers for bulk production.
