Studies on carbon steel corrosion properties were conducted under particular conditions. In acid media, weight loss assays were carried out using varying inhibitor concentrations and temperatures (35, 45, and 55oC) (0.1N H2SO4). Orange peels lose up to 93% of their activity in anaerobic conditions. There were numerous polarization and weighting procedures employed in aluminum pata study. Increasing temperatures and the rate of corrosion led to a decrease in the corrosion potential, which became increasingly negative. Increasing the amount of corrosion inhibitor reduces the corrosion current and raises the corrosion potential of the system.
