Corrosion of reinforcement steel of concrete is one of the main causes of deteriorations of structures. Principally, it is an electrochemical process, which can be divided by two mechanisms - acidic and chloride initiated corrosion. Optical sensoric materials were prepared, which allow a non-destructive monitoring of these processes. The sensors are embedded into concrete structures and the signal is transported through optical fibres. pH-indicator azo dyes have been synthesised for monitoring of acidic attack. An aldehyde group has been used as dye-reactive functionality for the first time. The dyes have been covalent bound to poly(vinyl alcohol co ethylen) by acetal spacer bridge to…
