The purpose of this chapter is to remind the reader of the bibliographic information required to define the context of our chapter. We begin by discussing the phenomenon of corrosion and its social and economic implications. Corrosion losses have significant economic and environmental impact on the entire global infrastructure, accounting for 3-4% of the GDP of industrialized countries. The use of corrosion inhibitors is probably the simplest, most cost-effective, and most practical anticorrosion strategy commonly used in the industry. Graphene and graphene oxide, having a nanostructure geometry, have a high potential for corrosion inhibition. This chapter briefly describes the principles, types, structures, and applications of graphene and graphene oxide as nanostructured corrosion inhibitors.
