Corrosion behaviour of low carbon steel in acidic and acidic-chloride solutions

Authors(2) :-Olaseinde O. A, Adewuyi B. O

An investigation of the corrosion behaviour of low carbon steel in 0.5M sulphuric acid, 1M sulphuric acid, 0.5M sulphuric acid with10% sodium chloride and 1M sulphuric acid with10% sodium chloride were using conventional weight loss method and potentiodynamic method. The microstructure of the alloy was revealed by optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. It was observed that the increase in concentration of the acid caused the corrosion potential to move to more negatives values. Addition of chloride to the sulphuric acid reduces the corrosion potential, increases the current density and corrosion rates of the low carbon steel.
