Anodic Aluminum Oxide Matrix Encapsulating Nonivamide for Anticorrosion and Antifouling Application
Electrochemical method is applied to prepare the porous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) membrane. After the impregnation process, nonivamide was encapsulated into the channels of the AAO membrane. We apply the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and polarization techniques to measure the performance of the combined material. The slight solubility of nonivamide enables it to release slowly from the AAO channels. This composite AAO-nonivamide material can show multifunctional effects, anticorrosion and antifouling, to the substrate aluminum metal.
