M-ERA.NET COIN DESC: CORROSION INHIBITION AND DEALLOYING DESCRIPTORS

COIN DESC is a basic research project targeted at

  1. the design of corrosion resistant copperbased alloy systems by using corrosion inhibitors
  2. deepening the mechanistic understanding of corrosion inhibition.

The specific innovation objective of the project is to identify the physically-sound corrosion inhibition and dealloying descriptors, depending on the metallic material and environment to which the material is exposed. Such descriptors are mandatory for the construction of a new corrosion inhibitor virtual design framework which will allow a faster and more rational based screening of new specifically designed corrosion inhibitors with superior characteristics. These principle objectives will be achieved by means of an iterative learning, synergistic modelling-experimental approach pursuing the ICME-oriented paradigm, consisting of multi-scale modelling and simulation, chemical synthesis of new materials, multi-scale experimental analysis and testing, and validation.
