Abstract

Purpose

The inhibition effect of Foeniculum vulgare seeds’ (FVS) extract on the corrosion of mild steel in acidic medium was studied using weight loss, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and Tafel polarization, as well as the surface morphology of the mild steel.

Design/methodology/approach

Weight loss measurements, potentiodynamic tests, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy studies and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and scanning electron microscopy analysis of FVS extract were performed.

Findings

FVS extract acts as a good inhibitor for the corrosion of mild steel in 1.0 M HCl. The inhibition efficiency increases with the increase in inhibitor concentration but decreases with the increase of temperature.

Practical implications

FVS extract was observed to play an important role in the corrosion inhibition of mild steel in acidic solution.

Originality/value

This paper is intended to be added to the family of green inhibitors which are highly efficient inhibitors and can be used in the area of corrosion prevention and control.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to study the inhibition effect of (6-phenyl-3-oxopyridazin-2-yl) acetohydrazide (GP4) on the corrosion of mild steel in acidic medium by gravimetric measurements, potentiodynamic polarization, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS).

Design/methodology/approach

Weight loss measurements, potentiodynamic tests and EIS were performed during this study.

Findings

(6-phenyl-3-oxopyridazin-2-yl) acetohydrazide (GP4) was found to be a very efficient inhibitor for mild steel in 1.0 M HCl solution, reaching about 85 per cent with inhibitor concentration 1.0 × 10-3 M at 303 K.

Practical implications

(6-phenyl-3-oxopyridazin-2-yl) acetohydrazide (GP4) was found to play an important role in the corrosion inhibition of mild steel in acidic solution.

Originality/value

This paper is intended to be added to the family of pyridazine derivatives which are highly efficient inhibitors and can be used in the area of corrosion prevention and control.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to study the inhibition effect of 2-pyridinealdazine on the corrosion of mild steel in an acidic medium. The inhibition effect was studied using weight loss, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and Tafel polarization measurements.

Design/methodology/approach

Weight loss measurements, potentiodynamic tests, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and spectral and conformational isomers analysis of A (E-PAA) and B (Z-PAA) were performed were investigated.

Findings

2-pyridinealdazine (PAA) acts as a good inhibitor for the corrosion of steel in 2.0 M H3PO4. The inhibition efficiency increases with an increase in inhibitor concentration but decreases with an increase in temperature.

Originality/value

This paper is intended to be added to the family of azines which are highly efficient inhibitors and can be used in the area of corrosion prevention and control.

Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate the effect of natural rosemary oil as non toxic inhibitor on the corrosion of steel in H3PO4 media at various temperatures.

Design/methodology/approach

The oil was hydro‐distilled. The oil was used as inhibitor in various corrosion tests. Gravimetric and electrochemical techniques were used to characterise the corrosion mechanism.

Findings

Chromatographic analysis by GC showed that the oil was rich in 1,8‐cineole. The oil was a good inhibitor. But, its efficiency decreased with temperature.

Research limitations/implications

The inhibition efficiency increased with the concentration of the natural oil to attain 73 per cent at 10 g/l. Good agreement between the various methods explored was observed. Polarisation measurements showed that rosemary oil acted essentially as a cathodic inhibitor.

Practical implications

The efficiency of the oil increased with the concentration but decreased with the rise of temperature in the 298‐348 K range. The natural oil could thus be used in chemical cleaning and pickling processes.

Originality/value

The originality of this work is the finding of a safe and cheap inhibitor from natural plants.

Abstract

Purpose

Electrochemical measurements were used to characterize the inhibiting effectiveness of Curcuma and saffron, considered as green inhibitors in a corrosive environment 3% NaCl on A106 Gr B carbon steel.

Design/methodology/approach

This study/paper aims to polarization and potentiodynamic impedance spectroscopy techniques were performed on A106 Gr B carbon steel in the 3% NaCl environment only and containing various concentrations of Curcuma and Saffron (0.005, 0.01, 0.02, 0.04, g/L) after 30 min of immersion; these measures were taken at a temperature of (298 ± 1)K. A voltlab PGZ 301 assembled by A 106 Gr B carbon steel working electrode, a platinum counter electrode (CE) and a saturated calomel electrode as the reference electrode were used in the experiment. In this research, potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy were used.

Findings

The inhibition efficiencies increased with increase in the concentrations of the inhibitor but decreased with rise in temperature. The obtained results show an optimal efficiency with 0.04 g/L which are ordered of 78 and 96 per cent successively for the two inhibitors. Curcuma and saffron acts as a mixed type inhibitor. Adsorption of the inhibitor molecules corresponds to Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Mechanism of inhibition was also investigated by calculating the thermodynamic and activation parameters like (ΔG), (Ea), (ΔHa) and (ΔSa). The inhibitor molecules followed physical adsorption on the surface of carbon steel.

Originality/value

The present trend in research on environmental friendly corrosion inhibitors is concentrating on products of natural origin due principally to non-toxicity and eco-friendliness. Among these natural products are curcuma and saffron.
