Abstract


Corrosion is a natural process. It can be defined as the destructive attack of a metal through interaction with its environment. A. corrosion inhibitor is a chemical compound that, when added to a liquid or gas in small amount decreases the corrosion rate of a metal or an alloy. Corrosion inhibitors are added to coolants, fuels, hydraulic fluids, boiler water, engine oil and many other fluids used in industry. The rate of various types of corrosion inhibitors which are used in different environment to reduce the corrosion of various metals and alloys are discussed in this paper
