Abstract Share this page

Phyllanthus amarus leaf extract (PAE) has been investigated as a corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in 1M hydrochloric acid. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic polarization technique were used to monitor the inhibition behaviour of PAE for the system under investigation at different exposure time (1h, 2h) and temperatures (303K, 308K and 313K). The inhibition capacity of PAE was observed to be increasing with increasing concentration. As the extract components got adsorbed on the metal surface, inhibition efficiency also increases and finally reached 95% at 303K. The rise in temperature affected the inhibition efficiency adversely. Weight loss studies carried out at different exposure time also revealed the inhibition efficiency of PAE. To understand the contribution of the major component in the inhibition potential of the extract computational calculations corresponding...
