Inhibition Effect of Hydrazine-Derived Coumarin on a Mild Steel Surface in Hydrochloric acid
In this work, economy novel hydrazine-derived coumarin 4-(6-methylcoumarin)acetohydrazide (MCA) were synthesized, characterized, and tested as an inhibitor for the corrosion of a surface of mild steel in an acidic environment through weight loss and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques. Results showed that the synthesized inhibitor can inhibit the corrosion of mild steel surface in a 1 M hydrochloric acid environment. The corrosion inhibition efficiency of MCA increases with increasing MCA concentration and decreases with increasing temperature. SEM analysis showed the formation of a film as a protective layer from MCA molecules on the surface of mild steel. Adsorption of the MCA molecules on the mild steel surface in the presence of hydrochloric acid environment was obeyed Langmuir isotherm. The density functional theory (DFT) calculations were used to study the relationship between molecular structure and inhibition efficiency and they found in good agreement.
