Title: Tannin bark Melalauca cajuputi powell (gelam) as green corrosion inhibitor of mild steel

Abstract

Tannin was extracted from gelam bark and used to produce corrosion inhibitor for mild steel. Tannin was extracted from gelam bark using 70% aqueous acetone for 6 hour. Tannin powder was characterization using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy to analyse chemical component in tannin and Scanning electron microscope (SEM) for tannin physical structure. The tannin effect on the corrosion inhibition of mild steel has been investigated in 1Mol HCl solution for 6 hour followed ASTM. The weight loss method were applied to study the mild steel corrosion behavior in the present and absend of different concentration of tannin (250, 300, 350)ppm. Tannin act good inhibitor as corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in acid medium. Surface morphology of carbon steel with and without inhibitor was investigated by scanning electron microscopy.

  • This study experimentally evaluated the effect of Sodium Nitrate inhibitor (NaNO{sub 3}) of 0.1%, 0.3%, and 0.5% on NaCl 3.5% toward pitting corrosion of dissimilar metal welding joint between stainless steel AISI 304 and mild steel SS 400. Electrochemical corrosion was tested using potentiodynamic polarization. Further the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) conducted to analyze the specimen. Chemical composition analysis used Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS). The highest efficiency of sodium nitrate for ER 308 attained 63.8% and 64.89%for ER 309L. The specimen surface which observed through SEM showed decrease of pitting corrosion respectively with the addition of sodium nitrate contentmore » as inhibitor.« less
  • Sodium molybdate (Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4]) is one of many proposed replacements for chromate-based inhibitors of steel corrosion. However, its ability to protect steel in natural waters, especially flowing natural waters, has not been examined in detail. Part 1 of this study detailed effects of flow rate on the corrosion rate of rotating cylinder electrodes (RcE) of ASTM A36 steel (UNS K02600) exposed to 125 ppm Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4] solutions under different flow conditions. Part 1 also discussed limitations of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) as a method of examining electrochemical behavior in low-conductivity environments. Part 2 examined the behavior of A36more » steel RCE exposed to various concentrations of Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4]. For polished samples, a critical concentration of Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4] existed, beyond which the corrosion rate increased. However, no critical concentration existed for samples that possessed a corrosion product prior to the addition of inhibitors. Oscillatory open-circuit potential behavior and EIS measurements suggested periodic active/passive transitions on pre-corroded samples.« less
  • Sodium molybdate (Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4]) has been proposed as a possible replacement for chromate-based corrosion inhibitors for steel. Although Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4] is used in industry, little characterization of its behavior in low-conductivity natural waters or under flowing conditions has been performed. Effects of flow rate and water treatment on ASTM A36 carbon steel (UNS K02600) in natural lake water has been examined by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EiS) using the rotating cylinder electrode technique. The corrosion behavior of A36 steel was found to be highly dependent upon flow rate in untreated natural water, but only moderately dependent upon flow ratemore » in waters treated with Na[sub 2]MoO[sub 4], as determined by alternating and direct current methods. The electrochemical impedance spectra of steel in natural water were corrupted by artifacts at frequencies of 100 Hz and above. These artifacts were exacerbated by the low conductivity of the natural water. The solution and polarization resistances were isolated in the spectra in a series of experiments using solutions of different conductivities.« less
  • This paper reports on 1,10,-Phenanthroline (Phen) examined as a corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in 1 N H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} acid solution by weight-loss and gasometric methods. Studies have also been made in 1 N HCl solution to compare the efficiency of the inhibitor in both acids. Activation energy in the presence and in the absence of the inhibitor has been evaluated. Galvanostatic polarization data indicate that the compound is predominantly a cathodic inhibitor.
  • A novel renewable cathode made from earth abundant, low-cost materials can contribute to the intermittent storage needs of renewable energy-based society. In this work, we report for the first-time tannin from Nature as a cathode material. Our approach exploits the charge storage mechanism of the redox active quinone moiety. Tannins extracted from tree bark using environmental friendly aqueous solvents have the highest phenol content (5.56 mol g -1) among all the natural phenolic biopolymers, 5000 times higher than lignin. Tannins coupled with a conductive polymer polypyrrole acquire high specific capacitance values of 370 F g -1 at 0.5 A gmore » -1 as well as excellent rate performance of 196 F g -1 at 25 A g -1. Additionally, we employed carbonized wood as an electrode substrate to produce a sustainable electrochemical device with dramatically improved performance compared to conventional devices. The high surface area provided by the well-aligned, cellular porosity of wood-derived substrate combined with the high mobility of ions and electrons in the carbonized cell walls and deposited tannin can achieve an areal capacitance of 4.6 F cm -2 at 1 mA cm -2, which is 1.5 times higher than activated wood carbon.« less
