Grape Pomace Extract as Green Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitor
The inhibition effect of the grape pomace extract during the early stage of steel corrosion under adsorbed thin electrolyte layers was investigated. The present study was carried out to identify the components present in the 2-propanol grape pomace extract by GC-MS analysis. Gravimetric, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, potentiodynamic polarization, scanning electron microscopy, and FTIR techniques were used to study the corrosion inhibitive. Polarization measurements have indicated that these green inhibitors acted through mixed type inhibition.
