Inhibitive effect by extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves on the corrosion of steel in 1M HCl solution

Inhibitive effect by extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves on the corrosion of steel in 1M HCl... An extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves (EMRL) was tested as a corrosion inhibitor of steel in 1 M HCl using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, Tafel polarization methods, and weight loss measurements. The inhibition efficiency of the extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves was calculated and compared. We note good agreement between these methods. The results obtained revealed that the inhibitor tested differently reduced the kinetics of the corrosion process of steel. Its efficiency increases with the concentration and attained 92.87 % at 35 %. The effect of temperature on the corrosion behavior of steel in 1 M HCl was also studied in the range 298 and 338 K. The thermodynamic data of activation were determined. Mentha rotundifolia extract is adsorbed on the steel surface according to a Langmuir adsorption model. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals

Abstract

An extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves (EMRL) was tested as a corrosion inhibitor of steel in 1 M HCl using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, Tafel polarization methods, and weight loss measurements. The inhibition efficiency of the extract of Mentha rotundifolia leaves was calculated and compared. We note good agreement between these methods. The results obtained revealed that the inhibitor tested differently reduced the kinetics of the corrosion process of steel. Its efficiency increases with the concentration and attained 92.87 % at 35 %. The effect of temperature on the corrosion behavior of steel in 1 M HCl was also studied in the range 298 and 338 K. The thermodynamic data of activation were determined. Mentha rotundifolia extract is adsorbed on the steel surface according to a Langmuir adsorption model.
