Review Article


Since corrosion has tremendous economic effects, academics and industries have sought to develop more effective coatings. These efforts have led to profound importance of nanocomposite coatings based on polymers and carbon nanostructures. It is shown that good reinforcement, advanced mechanical properties, and high corrosion resistance are only found at relatively low levels of nanocarbon (i.e., fullerene, carbon black, carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, and carbon dots) loadings in coating compositions. Herein, a survey of breakthrough scientific studies on application of carbon nanostructures in corrosion-resistant organic coatings is carried out to pave the way for future developments in novel nanocoatings.
