Computational and Experimental Studies on the Inhibitive Effects of Newbouldia laevis Extract and Magnetic Fields on Copper Corrosion in Aqueous Acidic Media

Full Text PDF


A ploycrystaline copper (99.99%) coupons of dimension 1x2x5 cm in which a hole of diameter 0.5cm drilled was used. Before all measurements, the coupons were polished successively with metallographic emery paper between (600 and 1200) grits, then washed with doubly distilled water, degreased with acetone and again washed using distilled water and finally allowed to dry in air at room temperature. Explanation of the effects of magnetic fields on inhibition process using the chemical quantum calculations. The dipole moment is the product of a charge and distance of separation of the charges in an atom or molecule. Any process which can cause change in the alignment of the dipoles on the surface of the corroding metal systems can facilitate an increase in inhibition process. The magnetic field acts on the dipoles such that it aligns the charges on the metal thereby providing the needed charge types at the required point. This explains the graph on figure 1 which shows an increase in inhibition efficiency in the presence of magnetic fields.
