Title of Speech: Self-Healing Anticorrosion Coatings based on Metal-Organic Framework Nanoparticles

Abstract: Utilization of self-healing nanocontainers with corrosion inhibitors is an efficient strategy for protecting metals from corrosion. However, self-healing coatings require the rapid release of these corrosion inhibitors to achieve an on-demand barrier on metal surface while avoiding unwanted leakage before the protective coatings are damaged. Zeolitic imidazole framework (ZIF) is an emerging class of functional materials with promising nanostructures and applications in biomedicine and materials science.  we present a dynamic protective coating system with self-healing anticorrosion function, based on pH-responsive ZIF nanoparticles. Due to the advantage of high content of corrosion inhibitor in the ZIF nanoparticles and its nature of pH-sensitivity, the ZIF-7 nanoparticles could quickly respond to the surrounding acid environment and release the linker as healing agent, led to a new barrier on scratched metal surfaces.
We also report well-defined ZIF@BTA nanoparticles with approximately 30 wt% benzotriazole inhibitors via a ligand exchange approach. The as-synthesized ZIF@BTA nanoparticles can rapidly release the BTA inhibitor onto scratched areas on metal surfaces, providing 99.4% inhibition efficiency under acidic conditions. Moreover, only limited inhibitor of BTA molecules was leached out (less than 4%) in a neutral environment. Furthermore, the ZIF@BTA nanoparticles were further distributed in the polymer matrix to prepare the self-healing anticorrosion coatings for corrosion resistance enhancement in an acidic environment. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) analysis was utilized to characterize the corrosion resistance.
