Abstract


The corrosion resistance of commercial aluminium (95% pure) in simulated concrete pore solution (SCPS) prepared in natural sea water has been evaluated in the absenceand  presence of curcumin extract and Zn2+.It is observed that Aluminium is more corrosion   resistance in SCPS than in sea water. When curcumin extract is added to SCPS, the corrosion resistance of Al increases. However, in the presence of  curcumin –Zn2+ system, the corrosion resistance of Al in SCPS decreases.
