abstract Sol-gel derived films exhibit a high potential as substitutes for the environmentally unfriendly chromate metal-surface pre-treatment methods. Inorganic sol-gel derived films offer good adhesion between metals and organic paint. However, they cannot provide adequate corrosion protection due to their high crack-forming potential. Introduction of an organic component to an inorganic sol-gel system leads to the formation of thicker, more flexible and functionalized films with enhanced compatibility to different organic top coatings. Incorporation of nanoparticles in the hybrid sol-gel systems increases the corrosion protection properties due to lower porosity and lower cracking potential along with enhancement of the mechanical properties. Furthermore, the incorporation of inorganic nanoparticles can be a way to insert corrosion inhibitors, preparing inhibitor nanoreservoirs for "self-repairing'' pre-treatments with controlled release properties.
