The main objective of the work described in this dissertation is to explore the route towards new anticorrosion coatings for the protection of aerospace aluminium alloys using alternative strategies that can replace the currently used toxic chromate corrosion inhibitors. As such, each chapter of this dissertation is devoted to relevant scientific and industrial challenges whereby the research on corrosion, inhibition and coating systems is combined with a newly developed in-situ optical-electrochemical technique.
