EFFECT OF ANION GROUPS ON CORROSION INHIBITION BEHAVIOURS OF VIETNAM ORANGE PEEL ESSENTIAL OIL FOR MILD STEEL IN THE ACIDIC MEDIA

Abstract


This paper deals with the effect of anion groups (SO42- and Cl-) on inhibition behaviours of Vietnam orange peel essential oil (OPE) for corrosion process of mild steel in acidic media. The electrochemical techniques (potentiodynamic, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)), weight loss and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analyses are used in this study. The results show that anion groups do not affect the inhibition mechanism of OPE. The OPE ­behaves as mixed inhibitor for mild steel corrosion in both 1N HCl and H2SO4 acid. The inhibition efficiency of OPE in 1N HCl is greater than that in 1N H2SO4 which implies that the adsorption of the inhibitor is influenced by the nature of anions in acidic solutions. Moreover, the OPE inhibits both general and pitting corrosion for mild steel in the acidic media.
