Electroless Ni-P\alginate microgels coatings with self-healing properties
  Self-healing coatings, offering corrosion protection on an alloy steel substrate, were fabricated by electroless co-deposition of a Ni-P matrix together with alginate microgels incorporating nickel saltsand sodium hypophosphite. Reconstruction of the metallic coating occurs whilst it is immersed in 3.5% NaCl solution, due to the autocatalytic reaction of nickel deposition.
