Vapor phase assembly of benzotriazole and octadecylamine complex films on aluminum alloy surface

Abstract

The complex films of benzotriazole and octadecylamine have been prepared on the surface of aluminum alloy via vapor phase self-assembly method. Their anticorrosion and wettability are investigated by the electrochemical measurements and the contact angle tests. It shows that the complex films have a better protection effect on aluminum alloys compared with the single component films. The performance of the complex films is related to the sequence of vapor phase self-assembly. The formation mechanism of the different complex films is discussed based on the self-assembly sequence.
