Abstract

This paper summarizes the inhibitor activity of various reported thiourea derivatives in acid mediaused against the deterioration of mild steel. Acid solutions have been extensively employed in manufacturingand many industrial processes for pickling and removal of undesirable scale. Mild steel is highly susceptibleto corrosion in such aggressive acid media. The additives such as inhibitors are widely employed in those casesto reduce the extent of corrosion as much as possible. The survey of literature on organic inhibitors clearlyindicates the potential usage of thiourea derivatives as inhibitors of mild steel corrosion. The influence ofphysical-chemical properties on the inhibition activity of thiourea derivatives has been discussed. This informationis highly useful for different industrial applications where good performing inhibitors are beingrequired for protecting mild steel from aggressive acid media.
