Ceftriaxone as an Inhibitor for Corrosion of Al in Formic Acid Solutions

Salah Abd El Wanees, Mohamed I. Alahmdi, Abla Ahmed Hathoot, Sabry Shaltoot


The inhibiting effect of ceftriaxone on the corrosion of Al in HCOOH solution was studied by means of weight loss, thermometry, hydrogen evolution and potentiodynamic polarization techniques, complemented with surface examination using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The obtained results showed that ceftriaxone are excellent inhibitor in HCOOH solution. The inhibition efficiency increases with inhibitor concentration. Polarization curves indicate that ceftriaxone was acted as a mixed-type inhibitor. The adsorption of the inhibitor on Al surface was found to obey Langmuir isotherm and showed a physisorption mechanism. The thermodynamic activation and adsorption parameters were calculated and discussed.

Keywords: Ceftriaxone, aluminum, corrosion inhibitor, potentiodynamic polarization, adsorption, gravimetry and gasometry
