Polyaniline has been electrodeposited on AA 7075 alloy and its corrosion protection ability has been studied by Tafel and impedance techniques in 1% NaCl. Pure polyaniline film is not found to protect the aluminium alloy due to galvanic interaction of polyaniline and aluminium surface exposed through pinholes and cracks. However, it is found that the corrosion resistance property of the polyaniline film can be substantially increased by post-treatment in cerium salt solution.
