Nanocontainers: Their application in smart functional coatings
A recently published review summarises recent developments in nanocontainer-based smart functional coatings. These types of coatings were first developed by researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in the year 2006 under the supervision of Professor Mohwald. Since then, the nanocontainer-based smart anti-corrosion coatings have attracted the attention of researchers worldwide, as can be concluded from the number of publications (>1500 publications during the last decade).
The concept of the nanocontainers loaded smart coatings has already been transferred to the level of commercialisation. The primary aim of the review is to compile different researches that have been published to develop an in-depth understanding of the field and summarise various nanocontainers utilised, recent advancements in the field, and prospects related to the smart coating loaded with stimuli-responsive nanocontainers. The review also aims to provide extensive knowledge on the underlying phenomena and basic mechanisms that influence the loading and release of active ingredients in nanocontainers, hence controlling their design for application in multifunctional smart coatings.
The review has been published in Progress in Organic Coatings, Volume 176, March 2023.
Coatings formulation explained step by step: already in its 4th edition, this textbook describes the formulation of the most important types of coatings in unmatched detail. Starting by examining the chemical composition and in particular the binders of the coatings presented, the authors then dive into formulation advice and an analysis of existing recipes. On top, you will acquire a sound knowledge of raw materials and their interactions. “Coatings Formulation” is your must-read if you are familiar with the basics of chemistry and wish to fully dive into the field of paints and coatings formulation!
