    Abstract: Corrosion behavior of mild steel immersed in 0.5 M H2SO4 and corrosion inhibition in the presence of different concentrations of 2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-(1h-phenantro[9,10-d]imidazol-2-yl) phenol (PIP) was investigated using weight loss and hydrogen evolution techniques at 303 – 333 K. The results indicate a maximum inhibition efficiency of 68.45% in t... Show More
