Abstract: The corrosion inhibition characteristics of 4-(N,N-dimethylamino) benzaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (DMABT) on the corrosion behavior of 6061 Al-15 vol. pct. SiC(p) composite and its base alloy were studied at different temperatures in acid mixture medium containing varying concentrations of hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid using Tafel extrapolation technique and ac impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The effect of inhibitor concentration, temperature and concentration of the acid mixture media on the inhibitor action was investigated. It was found that inhibition efficiencies increase with the increase in inhibitor concentration, but decrease with the increase in temperature and with the increase in concentration of the acid media. Thermodynamic parameters for dissolution process were determined. The adsorption of DMABT on both the composite and base alloy was found to be through physisorption obeying Freundlich adsorption isotherm. 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
