Impedance analysis of film-forming amines for the corrosion protection of a carbon steel

Abstract : Octadecylamine (ODA) is a well-known organic inhibitor for the corrosion protection of carbon steels. Inthe present study, electrochemical impedance data analysis was performed to extract physical param-eters of the ODA thin film that formed on a P275 carbon steel surface. First, surface observations andcontact angle measurements showed the steel surface modification after the ODA treatment linked to theadsorption of an organic hydrophobic thin film. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirmed the pres-ence of a very thin organic layer and revealed the presence of iron oxide-hydroxide underlying the ODAfilm. The impedance data analysis with a power-law distribution of resistivity in the organic film allowedthe permittivity and thickness to be extracted. Finally, from the impedance results with and withoutODA, the instantaneous corrosion inhibition efficiency was determined.
