The effect of some triazole derivatives as inhibitors for the corrosion of mild steel in 5% hydrochloric acid

The effect of some triazole derivatives as inhibitors for the corrosion of mild steel in 5%... Corrosion inhibition by triazole derivatives (n-MMT) on mild steel in 5 % hydrochloric acid (HCl) solutions has been investigated by weight loss and electrochemical methods. The results obtained revealed that these compounds performed excellently as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel in HCl solution. Potentiodynamic polarization studies showed that they suppressed both the anodic and cathodic processes and inhibited the corrosion of mild steel by blocking the active site of the metal. The effect of temperature on the corrosion behavior of mild steel in 5 % HCl with the addition of different concentrations of the inhibitors was studied in the temperature range from 303 to 333 K. The associated activation corrosion and free adsorption energies were determined. The adsorption of these compounds on the mild steel surface obeys the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The effect of molecular structure on the inhibition efficiency has been investigated by quantum chemical calculations. The electronic properties of inhibitors were calculated and are discussed.
