About the Project

This PhD project will build upon the design, synthesis and evaluation/optimisation of a new class of corrosion inhibitors developed by Schlumberger Cambridge Research Centre. The newly developed chemistries are designed to protect carbon steel in demanding, high temperature aqueous CO2-containing environments, analogous to those encountered in geothermal and oil and gas systems.

The project will explore new methodologies for the design and evaluation of inhibitory molecules using autoclave systems, with the intention of improving the understanding of the corrosion mechanisms of such chemistries.
