Article
Corrosion is an environmental and economic global problem. “Smart” or stimuli-responsive colorimetric nanosensors for maritime coatings have been proposed as an asset to overcome the limitations of the current monitoring techniques by changing color in the presence of triggers associated with the early stages of corrosion. Layered double hydroxides...

The MarTERA project "SMARTAQUA" is developing an eco-friendly and low-cost early corrosion detection that can be applied on maritime steel structures. • Hexacyanoferrate ions [Fe(CN) 6 ] 3-, which can react with Fe 2+ ions generated from the corrosion of steel giving a blue colour "signal", were incorporated in layered double hydroxides (Mg-Al LDH)...
Article
This work describes the synthesis and characterization of Zn‐Al and Mg‐Al layered double hydroxides (LDHs) intercalated with hexacyanoferrate. X‐ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy indicated a successful intercalation of hexacyanoferrate in the sub‐micrometer sized platelate‐like particles. The release studies of...
Article
Chitosan microspheres containing bromocresol green, cresol red, and phenolphthalein for corrosion detection, through pH change, are synthesized in order to be used in protective coatings for aluminium alloys. Microspheres containing corrosion detection species are characterized morphologically (SEM) and physico‐chemically (FTIR, TGA). Release studi...
Article
Biofouling is one of the most challenging problems for the maritime industry that has been minimized through the application of coatings containing anti-fouling (AF) biocides (e.g. Cu-based compounds; DCOIT) in immersed structures. An innovative eco-friendly approach based on the encapsulation of AF biocides in engineered nanomaterials (e.g. silica...
Article
The massic energies of combustion for three crystalline monosubstituted guaiacols such as vanillic acid, methyl vanillate and acetovanillone were determined by using bomb calorimeter method and were found to be − (21,070.3 ± 8.6), − (23,352.3 ± 7.4) and − (26,732.2 ± 5.2) J g⁻¹, respectively. The standard molar enthalpy of combustion and standard m...
Article
Specific energy of combustion of vanillin was determined using the bomb calorimeter BIC 100 with high degree of thermal protection from environment impact. The standard deviation of mean for energy equivalent was 0.01%. Based on the specific energy of combustion −(25,072.1 ± 7.4) J g⁻¹, the standard molar enthalpy of combustion and standard molar e...
