Organic molecules showing the characteristics of localised corrosion aggravation and inhibition
MetadataShow full item record
The behaviour of imidazoline and an acid functionalised resorcinarene as steel corrosion inhibitors in carbon dioxide (CO2)-saturated brine solutions has been studied using an electrochemically integrated multi-electrode array namely the wire beam electrode (WBE). Both imidazoline and resorcinarene acid provided excellent inhibition to general CO2 corrosion; however imidazoline was found to aggravate localised corrosion by creating a small number of major anodes that focused on a small area of the WBE surface, leading to highly concentrated anodic dissolution. The resorcinarene acid showed distinctively different behaviour by generating a large number of minor anodes randomly distributing over the WBE surface, leading to insignificant general anodic dissolution. These results indicate that resorcinarene acid provided effective localised corrosion inhibition by promoting a random distribution of insignificant anodic currents.
