Book description

Supramolecular chemistry, "the chemistry beyond the molecule", is a fascinating realm of modern science. The design of novel supramolecular structures, surfaces, and techniques are at the forefront of research in different application areas, including corrosion and biofouling protection.

A team of international experts provide a comprehensive view of the applications and potential of supramolecular chemistry in corrosion and biofouling prevention. Chapter topics include types and fundamentals of supramolecules, supramolecular polymers and gels, host-guest inclusion compounds, organic-inorganic hybrid materials, metallo-assemblies, cyclodextrins, crown ethers, mesoporous silica and supramolecular structures of graphene and other advances.

Additional Features include:

  • Focuses on different aspects of supramolecular chemistry in corrosion and biofouling prevention.
  • Comprehensively covers supramolecular interactions that can provide better corrosion and biofouling protection.
  • Provides the latest developments in self-healing coatings.
  • Explores recent research advancements in the suggested area.
  • Includes case studies specific to industries.


The different supramolecular approaches being investigated to control corrosion and biofouling are gathered in one well-organized reference to serve senior undergraduate and graduate students, research students, engineers, and researchers in the fields of corrosion science & engineering, biofouling, and protective coatings.
