Corrosion of reinforcement metal of concrete is among the major reasons of deteriorations of constructions. mostly, it's an electrochemical procedure, which might be divided via mechanisms ¿ acidic and chloride initiated corrosion. Optical sensoric fabrics have been ready, which enable a non-destructive tracking of those techniques. The sensors are embedded into concrete buildings and the sign is transported via optical fibres. pH¿indicator azo dyes were synthesised for tracking of acidic assault. An aldehyde crew has been used as dye¿reactive performance for the 1st time. The dyes were covalent absolute to poly(vinyl alcohol co ethylen) through acetal spacer bridge to guarantee long¿term balance of the sensor. the color switch of such ready pH¿indicator fabrics happens within the pH period of eleven to thirteen and permits to foretell the acidic assault in an early degree. The reaction time of those sensors is within the diversity of seconds. The optical detection of chloride ions in alkaline media has been investigated. Benzimidazolotrimethine dyes are likely to shape J¿aggregates below impact of chloride ion focus in pH of 10 to thirteen. an appropriate polymer has been constructed ¿ poly(vinyl alcohol co vinyl butyral), during which the dye is dissolved as host¿guest procedure. Such ready sensor fabric permits an actual decision of chloride focus and exhibits an exceptional selectivity opposed to different anions, that are common within the presence of concrete buildings. To the easiest of our wisdom it's the first optical sensors for selection of chloride in alkaline media.
