Assessing the Performance of Anthocleista Dialonensis and Viscum Album a Eco-friendly Corrosion Inhibitors in Acidic and Saline Environment

ABSTRACT

Leaf extract of Anthocleista djalonensis and Viscum album were investigate as inexpensive and environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors for mild steel in 0.5 M H2SO4 and 3.5% NaCl was investigated by weight loss and potentiodynamic polarization techniques. The results revealed that Anthocleista djalonensis and Viscum album inhibited the corrosion reaction and the inhibition efficiency increased with increasing concentration of extracts but decreased with prolonged exposure time. Anthocleista djalonensis was found to be the best and effective inhibitor in 0.5 M H2SO4 with 95.0% while Viscum album afforded higher inhibition efficiency in the saline environment with (93.0%) .Polarization data show that the extract behaved mostly as a mixed-type inhibitors. The results obtained indicate that these extracts can serve as inexpensive and environmentally friendly alternatives to the costly and toxic corrosion inhibitors presently in use.
