Akpan, I A. & Offiong, N.O. (2013). Inhibition of Mild Steel Corrosion in Hydrochloric Acid Solution by Ciprofloxacin Drug. International Journal of Corrosion, DOI:10.1155/2013/301689.
The inhibition of mild steel corrosion in hydrochloric acid solution by ciprofloxacin drug as an eco-friendly and commercially available inhibitor was studied at room temperature by weight loss technique. It was found that the test drug has a promising inhibitory action against corrosion of mild steel in the medium investigated. The inhibition efficiency was found to increase with a corresponding increase in the concentration of the inhibitor. It was also found that the adsorption as well as the inhibition process followed a first-order kinetics and obeyed Langmuir’s adsorption isotherm.
