In this work new dual-functional organic salts were designed to prevent the corrosion of steel. These combined corrosion inhibitors showed synergistic effects, resulting in greater protection than could be achieved with compounds acting on their own. A parallel study found that the new salts were highly conductive, and could be useful as solid electrolytes for batteries and fuel cells. This thesis shows that organic salts can be successfully targeted for use in a range of practical applications.
