Abstract

In this work the characteristics of corrosion and inhibition of 1008 stainless steel in 0.5 mol.L-1 H2SO4 were investigated by physical and electrochemical methods. Organic compounds containing the heteroatom of N as benzotriazole (BTAH), tolytriazole (TTAH) and mixtures of BTAH + TTAH were used as corrosion inhibitors. The techniques used were: open circuit potential, anodic potentiodynamic polarization measurements, chronoamperometry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, weight loss and optical microscopy. The anodic polarization showed that the increase of both concentrations BTAH or TTAH diminishes the current density in all the potential anodic range studied; these results together with the weight loss measurements suggest that the inhibitors act by blocking the surface and that the interaction among them is only of destructive nature when inhibiting efficiency is approximated 100%, revealing that at low concentration both inhibitors act without affecting the mechanisms of the cathodic processes, but the anodic polarization curves in presence of the TTAH showed a strong inhibitive effect in all the potential range studied. However, both gravimetric and electrochemical results suggest a synergic effect for the inhibitive efficiency of the mixture 1.10-3 mol.L-1 BTAH + 1.10-3 mol.L-1 TTAH.

Keywords: carbon steel 1008, corrosion, inhibitor, sulfuric acid, benzotriazole, tolytriazole.
