Abstract

The inhibition of mild steel corrosion in aerated acid mixture of 0.5 N H2SO4 and 0.5 N HCl solution was investigated using potentiodynamic polarization studies, linear polarization studies, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, adsorption, and surface morphological studies. The effect of inhibitor concentration on corrosion rate, degree of surface coverage, adsorption kinetics, and surface morphology is investigated. The inhibition efficiency increased markedly with increase in additive concentration. The presence of PEG and PVP decreases the double-layer capacitance and increases the charge-transfer resistance. The inhibitor molecules first adsorb on the metal surface following a Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Both PEG and PVP offer good inhibition properties for mild steel and act as mixed-type inhibitors. Surface analysis by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) shows that PVP offers better protection than PEG.
