Publication date: 1 June 1954


The corrosion of metals can be reduced or prevented by influencing the electrode processes of electrochemical corrosion cells with suitable chemical additions to the corrosive electrolyte. It is the purpose of these articles to consider the mechanism of inhibition, and the applications and limitations of typical inhibitors. This first article is devoted to a consideration of the principles of inhibition in aqueous neutral solutions.
