What is it about?

Here we describe an environmentally benign nickel-zinc tungstate (NiWO4-ZnWO4) nanocomposite with great adhesion and reduced porosity due to improved adsorption sites and film ordering inspired by deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The synthesis of the newly designed mixed-metal oxide was done via a simple wet-chemical process in the presence of DNA and in-absence of DNA. Electrochemical analyses confirmed improved corrosion protection of Cu by approximately two orders of magnitude by using nickel-zinc tungstate with DNA compared to only the sample without DNA and the blank system (without any inhibitor).

Why is it important?

Trace quantity of DNA improved the anchoring site


This work was very interesting in discovering the strong role of a small of DNA
