Phosphate-doped polyaniline pigment was prepared by a chemical oxidation method using ammonium persulfate in phosphoric acid media. Fourier transform infrared studies were done to characterize the pigment. The magnesium alloy ZM 21 was coated with polyaniline-pigmented paint, based on an epoxy binder, and the corrosion performance of the coating was studied by potential measurements and electrochemical imopedance spectroscopy in 0.1% and 0.5% NaCl solutions. The results were compared with strontium chromate and filler material-pigmented coatings. It was found that the coating containing polyaniline provided similar protection for the magnesium alloy as that offered by chromate-pigmented paint
