A concise review on corrosion inhibitors: types, mechanisms and electrochemical evaluation studies

This article presents a concise review of different types of inhibitors for corrosion protection on metal surfaces. Corrosion inhibitors can be of different types, which include organic, inorganic and hybrid (organic/inorganic) materials. They are …


Valorization of almond shells’ lignocellulosic microparticles for controlled release urea production: interactive effect of process parameters on longevity and kinetics of nutrient release

In this study, almond shell lignocellulosic bio-waste material is utilized as a spray suspension for the production of controlled release urea in a rotary pan coater. For this purpose, the almond shell particles are chemically modified to enhance …


Role of an interface crack for the blistering mode of a stiff film on a compliant substrate

A stiff thin film deposited over an underlying compliant substrate is susceptible to blistering when it is subjected to excessive in-plane compressive stresses. Two kinds of blistering modes (wrinkling and buckling) have been revealed in …
