PLANT EXTRACTS OF MUCUNA PRURIENDS AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY CORROSION INHIBITOR FOR MILD STEEL IN ACIDIC ENVIRONMENTS

The inhibiting effect of aqueous extracts of MucunaPruriends (MP) on mild steel corrosion in 1 M HCl and 0.5 M H2SO4solution was investigated using weight loss and electrochemical techniques. The results revealed that MP inhibited the corrosion reaction. Polarization data reveal that the extract functioned as a mixed type inhibitor. Inhibition efficiencies of the inhibitor increased with concentration of the extract but decreased gradually with an increase in the per...
