The inhibition ability of N,N′-bis(2,4-dihydroxyacetophenone)-1,3-propandiimine (DHAPP) as a schiff base against the corrosion of API-5L-X65 in 1 M HCl solution was evaluated by polarization, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Polarization studies indicated that DHAPP retards both the cathodic and anodic reactions through chemical adsorption and blocking the active corrosion sites. The adsorption of this compound obeyed the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The inhibition efficiency increased with inhibitor concentration and decreased with increasing temperature. EIS data analysed to equivalent circuit model showed that as the inhibitor concentration increased the charge transfer resistance of steel increased whilst double layer capacitance decreased. Kinetic and thermodynamic parameters such as activation energy, enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs free energy of activation and adsorption were calculated. Gibbs free energy indicated that adsorption occurred through physical and spontaneous process. Scanning electron microscopy was used to study the steel surface with and without inhibitor.
