What is it about?

This research tests the Ginger extract can be used as a green corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in 1.0 M of hydrochloric acid media which is important in the food industry. Weight loss and Polarization experiments show that the maximum corrosion efficiency of the highest inhibitor concentration was about 90%.

Why is it important?

Ginger extract considered as green corrosion inhibitor from natural resources to prevent corrosion of mild steel in acid media.


develop a useful green corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in acid media from Ginger extract. this inhibitor is more effective than highly toxic (inorganic and organic) compounds of to both human beings and the environment.
