Abstract

We consider a new concept - the electronic barrier - for corrosion prevention. The barrier is an electronic p-n junction made by topping one film of functionalized carbon nanotubes on another. Potentiodynamic tests and inspection by scanning electron microscope revealed that the order of the layers (namely, p-n or n-p) with respect to the metal surface does determine whether the metal corrodes or, not.
