Nanomaterials (nano-sized carbon allotropes) are extremely normal, particularly graphene (G), single and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs, CNTs, and SWCNTs), and their synthetic derivatives, including graphene oxide (GO), are extensively applied for corrosion mitigation. This article depicts the main characteristics of covalent and non-covalent functionalization of CNTs, G, and GO and their utilization as anti-corrosion materials in various surface coatings compositions. Synthetically changed CDs and GO have astounding dispersibility/solubility in the aqueous electrolytes. The synthesis, characterization and applications of functionalized nanomaterials for corrosion mitigation have been reviewed and discussed with the relevant examples. In addition to this, the advantages of this material as an anti-corrosion material have been also discussed.
