Methacrylate based copolymers have attracted a great deal of interest because of their environmental
friendly organic coatings for anticorrosive application. Poly ((N-methacryloyloxymethyl) benzotriazole-co-phenoxyethyl
methacrylate) has synthesized by free radical polymerization technique and confirmed by spectral and thermal analysis.
The anti-corrosion behavior of the synthesized copolymer coatings over low nickel stainless steel specimens were investigated
in 1M H2SO4 using potentiodynamic polarization, electrochemical impedance spectroscopic method and chronoamperometric
studies. Surface investigation like scanning electron microscopic and energy dispersive X-ray analysis
were also carried out in order to describe the adherence and morphology of the copolymer coatings. Electrochemical
corrosion studies and surface investigation results were confirm that the poly (MMBT-co-POEMA) coatings provided a
stable matrix and environmentally favored good anti-corrosive coating on low nickel stainless steel.
