Chitosan: A macromolecule as green corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in sulfamic acid useful for sugar industry.

Abstract

The present investigation aims at investigation of low cost nontoxic carbohydrate biopolymer chitosan as corrosion inhibitor alone and in combination with KI for mild steel in 1M sulfamic acid medium using gravimetric, electrochemical and surface analysis techniques. It is found that chitosan alone exhibits inhibition efficiency of 73.8% at 200ppm… (More)
