Corrosion Inhibition of C38 Steel in 1M HCl Media By Amazonian Tree Alkaloidic Extract: Electrochemical and Phytochemical Study of Xylopia Frutescens Aubl
The total alkaloid extract of Xylopia frutescenswas found to be an inhibitor for C38 steel corrosion in 1 M HCl solution and its inhibition efficiency increased with increasing concentration. The study showed that the inhibition behavior of the crude extract is due to the presence of aporphinoid alkaloids in the crude extract.
