In the last decade, there has been an increase in research related to green corrosion inhibitors for conservation of metals cultural heritage to help promote sustainable practices in the field that are safe, environmentally friendly, and ecologically acceptable. The most common are organic substances derived either from natural and/or biological sources: plant extracts and oils, amino acids, microorganisms, and biopolymers. The chapter will provide a review of these substances as corrosion…

Brewed Robusta Coffee Increases Nickel Ion Release from Dental Alloys: An In Vitro Study
The concentration of nickel increased in saliva of low pH due to brewed coffee, and dentists should be cautious when using instructions for patients with a history of allergies especially for dietary with low acidity.


Green Corrosion Inhibitors from Natural Sources and Biomass Wastes
The present review is meant as a constructive criticism to highlight the weak points of the green inhibitors field as to re-evaluate the literature and address the future research in the field that still lacks rationalization.
Green Inhibitors for Corrosion Protection of Metals and Alloys: An Overview
Corrosion control of metals is of technical, economical, environmental, and aesthetical importance. The use of inhibitors is one of the best options of protecting metals and alloys against corrosion.
Electrochemical characterization of organic coatings for protection of historic steel artefacts
Electrochemical techniques are mainly known in the field of cultural heritage conservation as a tool for the elimination of corrosion layers or the removal of chlorides. However, these techniques are
