Abstract: The corrosion behaviour of 18 % Ni M250 grade maraging steel under weld aged conditions in two different acid media, namely, hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid in various concentrations and temperatures have been studied by Tafel polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy techniques. The corrosion rate in the sulphuric acid medium was higher than in the hydrochloric acid medium. Five organic inhibitors were synthesized and characterized using spectral and elemental analysis. The five inhibitors were 1(2E)-1-(4-aminophenyl)-3-(2-thienyl) prop-2-en-1-one (ATPI), 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-oxoethyl benzoate (CPOB), 2-(4- bromophenyl)-2-oxoethyl- 4-chlorobenzoate (CPOM), (E)-1-(2,4-dinitrophenyl)-2-[1- (2-nitrophenyl) ethylidene] hydrazine (DNPH) and 5-diethylamino-2-{[2-(2,4- dinitrophenyl) hydrazin-1-ylidene]methyl} - phenol (DDPM). The results pertaining to the corrosion inhibition studies of five inhibitors in two different acid media at different temperatures in the presence of varying concentrations of inhibitors are reported in the thesis. Activation parameters for the corrosion of the alloy and thermodynamic parameters for the adsorption of the inhibitors have been calculated and the results have been analysed. The adsorption of first four inhibitors on the alloy was through both physisorption and chemisorption, with predominant physisorption in both the media. The mode of adsorption for the DDPM predominantly chemisorption in both the media. The adsorption of all the five inhibitors on alloy surfaces follows Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The inhibition efficiencies of first four inhibitors decrease with the increase in temperature, the inhibition efficiency of DDPM increases with the increase in temperature.
