Corrosion Protection of Aluminum Aerospace Alloys by Biofilm Appliques

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: University of California of Irvine
Principal Investigator: Margarita Kharshan, Lab. Director
Award Amount: $99,869.00
RI Contact: Peggy J. Arps
Abstract:
Fabrication procedures have been proposed to develop biofilm-containing appliques capable of mitigating the corrosion of aluminum aerospace alloys (e.g. AA2024-T3). The proposed methods are expected to produce surface protective flexible polymer coatings that containing bacterial biofilms capable of… More

SBIR Phase I:Bio-based Corrosion Inhibitors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alla Y. Furman, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of producing bio-based, environmentally benign, products for the prevention and treatment of corrosion and scale from low-value agricultural by-product streams. These by-products are generally available in large quantities and fairly uniform… More
