|Abstract||The inhibiting effect of Riboflavin (RF) on Q235 mild steel corrosion in 1 M HCl and 0.5 M H2SO4 at 30 degrees C temperature was investigated using electrochemical techniques (electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic polarization). The obtained results revealed that RF inhibited the corrosion reaction in both acidic solutions. Maximum inhibition efficiency values in 1 M HCl and 0.5 M H2SO4 were 83.9% and 71.4%, respectively, obtained for 0.0012 M RF. Polarization data showed RF to be a mixed-type inhibitor, while EIS results revealed that the RF species adsorbed on the metal surface. The adsorption of RF followed Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Atomic force microscopy (AFM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies confirmed the formation of a protective layer adsorbed on the steel surface. Quantum chemical calculations were used to correlate the inhibition ability of RF with its electronic structural parameters. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
