Paint, grease and oil prevent corrosion

Q: How paint, grease and oil prevent corrosion?

Ans:    Paint, grease and oil are organic compounds having high molecular weight. When these compounds are applied on metal surface, they adhere to it and due to their non-polar nature they are not dissolved in water. Thus these compounds will not allow water and H+ to be in direct contact with metal.
