January Meeting

New, Environmentally-Friendly Corrosion Inhibition
Conducting polymers a class of environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors. In this study, a novel one-step one-batch process of synthesizing conducting polymer nanospheres, using ozone as an oxidant, is discussed along with composite conducting polymer corrosion inhibitors synthesize via a environmentally friendly process. After providing a short introduction into how the corrosion inhibitors are made, details on the corrosion inhibition study will be provided.
Victoria J. Gelling
Associate Professor
Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials
North Dakota State University

Dr. Gelling is an Associate Professor in the Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials at North Dakota State University. She gained a B.S. in Chemistry at the University of North Dakota then completed a doctorate in Chemistry at North Dakota State University. Her principal research interests are the use of electrochemistry to monitor the health and degradation of polymeric materials and the transitioning of laboratory electrochemical techniques to the field. During her time at NDSU, she has studied various coating systems from the traditional to the novel, such as electroactive conducting polymers. She has experience with numerous lightweight metal alloys from her research concentrating on aluminum and magnesium corrosion inhibition; focusing on environmentally compliant non-chromate coatings.
