Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate the effect of synthesised calixarenes as new inhibitors on the corrosion of steel in HCl media at various temperatures.

Design/methodology/approach

Calixarenes have been synthesised and tested as corrosion inhibitors. Gravimetric technique and potentiodynamic polarisation and impedance spectroscopy methods were used.

Findings

Calixarenes exhibited a good inhibition. Their efficiency decreases slightly with temperature.

Research limitations/implications

It was found that the inhibition efficiency increases with the concentration of inhibitors to reach 92 per cent at 10−4M.

Practical implications

The efficiency of calixarene derivatives increases with the concentration and falls slowly with temperature to attain 84 per cent at 353 K range. Calixarenes can be used in chemical cleaning and pickling processes.

Originality/value

The originality of this work is to find an inhibitor to give protection close to 100 per cent.
