Green Organic Inhibitors for Corrosion Protection


Green Organic Inhibitors for Corrosion Protection

Y.V.D. Nageswar, V.J. Rao

Plants are a rich source of different varied organic compounds. Due to the important applications of naturally occurring chemicals their derivatives are also pursued for modifying and potentiating the activities of natural products. Metallic corrosion is a natural process resulting in heavy losses in various fields. Non hazardous and non toxic corrosion inhibitors gained significance due to the environmental regularities and guidelines issued in the course of saving the pristine nature of environment and to maintain the sustainability of our earth. Green corrosion inhibitors play a potential role for the above said cause. Recent research contributions on green corrosion inhibitors from the active researchers in the concerned expertise are presented briefly here to give an idea about the current research activity across the world.
