Corrosion inhibition and adsorption properties of resorcinol with Br - for the corrosion of mild steel in 0.5M H2SO4


Author(s): Rupesh Kushwah and RK Pathak

Abstract: Resorcinol as a inhibitor and its adsorption properties with Br- for the corrosion of mild steel were studied using thermometric, gasometric and wight loss monitoring corrosion. The results shows that resorcinol inhibited the corrosion process of mild steel. The inhibitor was found to function by being adsorbed on the surface of mild steel. Resorcinol shows synergism with Br- ion and inhibition increases with concentration of Br- with resorcinol. The adsorption of the resorcinol followed the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Kinetic and thermodynamic parameters also measured and discussed.
