A combination of electrochemical measurement and interface analysis have been applied to characterise the interaction of OMID, an exemplar imidazoline-based corrosion inhibitor, with carbon steel in 1 M hydrochloric acid. Corrosion inhibition efficiency data indicate that excellent performance is achieved well below the critical micelle concentration. High resolution X-ray photoelectron spectra demonstrate that, as the corrosion rate decreases, the interface evolves towards one comprising OMID bound to film-free carbon steel.

Abstract

A combination of electrochemical measurement and interface analysis have been applied to characterise the interaction of OMID, an exemplar imidazoline-based corrosion inhibitor, with carbon steel in 1 M hydrochloric acid. Corrosion inhibition efficiency data indicate that excellent performance is achieved well below the critical micelle concentration. High resolution X-ray photoelectron spectra demonstrate that, as the corrosion rate decreases, the interface evolves towards one comprising OMID bound to film-free carbon steel. This latter result provides key input for those researchers attempting to predict corrosion inhibitor functionality through atomic scale interfacial modelling, and so identify next generation chemistries.
