Green Corrosion Inhibitor for Electronics
S.K. Ujjain, P. Ahuja, R. Kanojia
Green corrosion inhibitors used for protection of metals and alloys in electronic devices are a key interest area for researcher because of increased environmental awareness which restrict the use of toxic and hazardous corrosion inhibitors which contaminate our ecological system. Advancement of green chemical technologies towards novel vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors (VPCI) as green inhibitors for electronics corrosion and their adsorption mechanism is discussed in detail here. Also, the protective role of VPCI for various metals and alloys used in electronics components and industrial applications are discussed.
