Corrosion inhibition of mild steel in acid medium by new benzonitriles
What is it about?
Two benzonitrilederivatives, namely 4-(isopentylamino)-3-nitrobenzonitrile(PANB) and 3-amino-4-(isopentylamino)benzonitrile(APAB) have been synthesized and evaluated as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel (MS) in 1 M HCl solution at 303K by gravimetric, potentiodynamic polarization (PDP) curves, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods, as well as Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Molecular Dynamic (MD) simulations.
Why is it important?
The outcome of this paper may help towards rational design of new corrosion inhibitors. We are currently working on many organic compounds as corrosion inhibitors. Cited by 5 times (update: 16/02/2019).
