In this study, polyoxadiazole-based coatings were molecularly designed by attaching two different functional groups, i.e., diphenyl-ether and diphenyl-hexafluoropropane, in the main polymer chain for the purpose of low water permeability and eventually for high corrosion protection of AM50 magnesium alloy. Potentiodynamic polarisation and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were used to evaluate the coating performance of the two polymers. Electrochemical experiments showed that POD-6FP (poly(4,4′-diphenyl-hexafluoropropane-1,3,4-oxadiazole)) coated alloy exhibited 3–4 orders of magnitude higher corrosion resistance as compared to the POD-DPE (poly (4,4′-diphenyl-ether-1,3,4-oxadiazole)) coated alloy. The high coating performance of the POD-6FP polymer can be attributed to the hydrophobic group attached to the polyoxadiazole chain.
