    Abstract

    Three current projects involving hybrid organic-inorganic sol-get coatings are described. Anticorrosive coatings have been developed as replacements for chromium pretreatment. Bio-active coatings limit the growth of fouling and corrosion-promoting micro-organisms. Conductive polymers have been incorporated in sol-gel systems to create anticorrosive coatings.
