Selected condensation products of aromatic aldehydes and thiosemicarbazide have been synthesized and evaluated as corrosion inhibitors of mild steel in 1N hydrochloric acid and 1N sulphuric acid by weight loss and potentiodynamic polarization methods. The values of activation energy and free energy of adsorption have also been determined to understand the mechanism of inhibition. The potentiodynamic polarization studies carried out at room temperature revealed that all the compounds are of mixed type inhibitors in both the acids. The adsorption of all the condensation products on the mild steel surface from both the acids has been found to obey Temkin’s adsorption isotherm. The inhibition efficiency of these compounds has been found to vary with the nature and concentration of the compounds, temperature, immersion time and nature of the acids.
