State and prospects of inhibitor protection of the metal resources of the Ukraine

At present, the overall losses caused by corrosion in the Ukraine are very high and increase constantly owing to an increase in the aggressiveness of the environment and a lack of corrosion-resistant materials and anticorrosion technologies. The corrosion-mechanical fracture of metals (corrosion fatigue or corrosion cracking) proves to be the most dangerous type of corrosion since it occurs without visible changes in the appearance of structures. This is true, first of all, for pipelines, chemical and power equipment, municipal utility services, etc.

The Ukrainian Association of Corrosionists has recently been founded with the aim of intensifying anticorrosion activities. The Association has about 40 organizational members (including academic and specialized institutes and industrial enterprises) and about one hundred individual members—prominent experts in corrosion science. The Technical Committee TC-85 “Corrosion of Metals and Alloys” was founded by the State Committee on Standardization and Metrology of the Ukraine. In 1993, the Ukraine became a member of the International Corrosion Council.

In view of the urgency of this problem, the Editorial Board of “Fiziko-Khimicheskaya Mekhanika Materialov” begins a series of survey, problem, and discussion papers devoted to the problem of protection of metals against corrosion. Scientists and experts are invited to discuss this and related problems in our journal. The present work opens the series. We consider and characterize the main groups of corrosion inhibitors used in industry and indicate their developers and producers. The addresses of the Collection and computer bank of corrosion inhibitors and inhibited materials are also presented.
