2 methyl -3- (trifluromethyl) aniline was tested as a corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in 1 M HCl and 0.5 M H2SO4 separately using mass loss and electrochemical studies. The inhibition efficiencies were evaluated at different concentrations of the inhibitor. The inhibition efficiency increased with increase in inhibitor concentration. Electrochemical studies showed that the inhibitor is of mixed type with a slight predominance of anodic character. The inhibitor was more active in HCl than in H2SO4. The maximum inhibition efficiency approached at 0.20 m M in both the acid medium. The surface morphology of mild steel in the presence and absence of inhibitor was studied by using SEM images.
