Inhibitive Action of Novel Schiff Base Towards Corrosion of API 5L Carbon Steel in 1 M Hydrochloric Acid Solutions

Abstract

Schiff base N,N′-bis(4-hydroxybenzaldehyde)-1,2-cyclohexandiimine as green corrosion inhibitor for API 5L carbon steel in 1 M hydrochloric acid solutions has been studied using electrochemical techniques. Results showed that the inhibition occurred through adsorption of the inhibitor molecules on the metal surface. The inhibition efficiency was found to increase with increasing inhibitor concentration and decreased with increasing temperature. Thermodynamic parameters for adsorption and activation processes were determined. Polarization data indicated that this compound acted as mixed-type inhibitors and the adsorption isotherm basically obeys the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The inhibition performance of inhibitor was also evidenced by atomic force microscopy and SEM images.
