Quinoline chalcones as corrosion inhibitors

What is it about?

In this study, the dependence of the inhibition effect of such two compounds, namely, 3-(3-oxo-3-phenyl-propenyl)-1H-quinolin- 2-one and 3-(3-oxo-3-phenyl-propenyl)-1H-benzoquinolin- 2-one, on their molecular and electronic structure is analyzed using density functional theory calculations.

Why is it important?

It has been confirmed that the most stable structures of these compounds in the aqueous phase are their protonated forms.
