This paper describes the synthesis of geopolymer materials using thermally modified clay rocks of Georgia and metallurgical granulated blast-furnace slag; as well as the study of their physical and mechanical properties, durability, and corrosion resistance in aggressive solutions.The methods of chemical, X-ray phase, differential thermal analysis and SEM were used.

Аnti-corrosion coatings based on modified epoxy compositions

The influence of surface-modified titanium dioxide on the electrochemical features of epoxy compositions was researched. The raise of epoxy primer protective properties by the presence of surface-modified fillers in its composition was determined. It is shown that the mechanism of the modified filler protective effect in epoxy coating applied on the steel is similar to the effect of solid zinc phosphate which effectiveness corresponds to the level of the known inhibitory pigment.


The corrosion resistance of steel with modified inhibitory pigments and polyurethane protective coatings was studied by impedance and electrochemical methods. It was found that the combination of a mixture of molybdate / zinc phosphate and calcium silicate in the polyurethane soil due to the synergistic effect enhances its protective properties. Impedance studies have confirmed the increase in anti-corrosion characteristics of such a system.

Influence of Surfactants on Copper-CNTs Electrodeposition

Influence of different types of surfactants on electrodeposition of copper- and carbon-bearing (graphite, carbon nanotubes (CNTs)) composite powder has been experimentally investigated. The size of powder particles decreased, and corrosion resistance increased when surfactants were added. Addition of cationic surfactant CTAB to the electrolyte with simultaneous ultrasonic treatment for CNTs dispersion gives maximum effect.

Modification of surfaces of special alloys by nitrogen for power engineering

The use of nitrogen as an alloying element presents a great interest for the improvement of properties of alloyed steels and special alloys. Superficial layers were formed by ionic implantation and by melting the surface by nitrogen plasma. After this kind of treatment, there form a continuous defect-free layers with a good adhesion to the surface. Surface treatment of steels and vanadium alloys increases their corrosion resistance and microhardness of surface layers.

Electrodeposition of Functional Cobalt-Silver and Cobalt-Tungstean Alloys

The kinetic mechanism of cobalt-silver and cobalt-tungsten alloys electrodeposition from citrate-pyrophosphate and citrate electrolyte correspondingly has been established. The influence of electrolyte component ratios as well as polarization pulse on/off time ratios on cobalt alloy composition and its current efficiency has been determined. The cobalt-silver and cobalt-tungsten alloys have been shown to possess catalytic and anticorrosion properties.
