The efficiency of AA5754 aluminium alloy corrosion inhibition achieved with maleic, malic, succinic, tartaric, citric, tricarballylic acids and serine in alkaline environment (pH 11) was examined. Selected corrosion inhibitors are characterized by different numbers and distribution of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups within their molecules. We have proposed and verified a novel approach for determining the adsorption isotherms based...
Evaluation of citric acid corrosion inhibition efficiency and passivation kinetics for aluminium alloys in alkaline media by means of dynamic impedance monitoring
A novel approach is proposed for constructing the adsorption isotherm in corrosion studies, based on a well-known interaction between citric acid and aluminium in alkaline electrolytes. Our approach utilizes the instantaneous impedance measurements via Dynamic Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy in galvanostatic mode (g-DEIS). Unlike other common tools, g-DEIS delivers exact information about the concentration required for full...
Instantaneous impedance monitoring of synergistic effect between cavitation erosion and corrosion processes
The most common method of determination of cavitation erosion resistance as well as the magnitude of erosion-corrosion synergistic interaction is based on the weight loss measurements. Nondestructive characterization of installations elements is in most cases impossible to perform. Also, such a measurement does not include local types of failure or alteration of operating conditions. There is an urge to elaborate a method for monitoring...
