Abstract

This study focuses on investigating the efect of Terminalia chebula Ritz. extract (TCE) for corrosion inhibition of Al in phosphoric acid (H3PO4) using potentiodynamic polarization (PDP) technique. In this study, the efect of concentration of TCE extract, the concentration of H3PO4 acid medium, and temperature (T) was investigated on the corrosion current density (icorr) and inhibition efciency (IE). The TCE was characterized by FTIR analysis, and the adsorption of TCE was justifed with the help of kinetic, thermodynamic, adsorption isotherm parameters. The surface morphology study was done using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDXS), and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The study also focuses on identifying the optimum process parameters for obtaining the maximum IE by applying the response surface methodology (RSM) and desirability function approach. The maximum IE of 83.24% was achieved at a temperature of 30 ℃, the concentration of TCE extract of 500 ppm, and H3PO4 acid concentration of 0.5 M. Regression analysis, Pareto chart, normal chart, main efect, and interaction efect plots are employed to acquire an in-depth under�standing of process variables on IE. The IE obtained from the experiments and the predicted model is in a close match and a high value of the coefcient of determination (R2=99.98%) displays that the generated model was able to estimate the IE accurately from the selected process variables.
