Short description A book to cover developments in corrosion inhibitors is long overdue. This need has been addressed by Dr. Sastri in a book that presents fundamental aspects of corrosion inhibition, historical developments and the industrial applications of inhibitors. The applications of corrosion inhibition are wide ranging. Examples given in this book include: oil and gas wells, petrochemical plants, steel reinforced cement, water cooling systems, and many more. The book is written for researchers in academia and industry, practicing corrosion engineers and students of materials science, engineering and applied chemistry.
