  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.
