Abstract

This work reports a detailed investigation of the structural and electrochemical barrier properties of PMMA-silica coatings. Hybrid nanocomposites were prepared by combining the sol-gel method with the polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA), using the thermal initiator benzoyl peroxide (BPO), followed by the hydrolytic condensation of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and 3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate. Raman spectroscopy and thermal analysis showed that the fine-tuning of the BPO amount, a critical synthesis parameter, improved the polymerization efficiency of MMA, leading to a highly cross-linked hybrid structure. The homogeneous coatings prepared under optimized synthesis conditions presented elevated thermal stability due to improved polymerization of the organic phase. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) showed a quasi-ideal capacitive impedance response in 3.5% NaCl solution, with low frequency impedance modulus of up to 10 G Omega cm(2), which remained essentially unchanged during 19 months of immersion. This notable barrier property was modeled by fitting the EIS curves assuming slowly expanding electrolyte uptake, using the two-layer Young approach, and by comparison with the standard equivalent electrical circuit (EEC/CPE) model. The Young model provided valuable information on the time evolution of physical parameters including the thickness of the uptake zone, the conductivity depth-profile and the dielectric constant, among others, evidencing the high performance of the coatings.
