Sajdl, P., Janda, V., Vosta, J., Macak, J., Racek, J. Corrosion inhibitor for natural gas recovery, transportation and storage facility (2011),  patent CZ 302855 B6 20111214.  

In the present invention, there is disclosed a corrosion inhibitor for natural gas recovery, transportation and storage facility contg. 45 to 55 percent by wt. of propargyl alc., 23 to 27 percent by wt. of dimethylbenzyllaurylammonium bromide, 20 to 26 percent by wt. of triethanolamine phosphate and 0.5 to 1.0 percent by wt. of fatty acid alkanolamide.  In case of more corrosive environment, the inhibitor of the present invention further comprises 0.2 to 0.5 percent by wt. of ethanolamines, and optionally 0.2 to 0.5 percent by wt. of octadecylamine in the form of 10 percent emulsion.

A review.  Sputtering, the 1st invented phys. vapor deposition (PVD) coating technol. was known for >150 years.  Although the PVD and related technologies were commercialized for over 70 years, their expansion in the last 20 years has become enormous - from decorative and cutting tool to special optical applications and microelectronics.  This is due to their excellent properties such as chem. inertness, hardness, tribol., tribochem. and optical properties.  In many applications the PVD coatings are exposed to corrosive environments.  Also, PVD coatings of environment-friendly nature are often considered to be potential successors of Cd-based anticorrosion coatings.  This fact promotes numerous studies of corrosion properties of thin coatings.  Hard coatings (including nitrides, carbides and oxides) are usually more corrosion-resistant than the base material.  Some of them (e.g. Ti nitride, the most common PVD coating) have columnar microstructure which brings about the possibility of high micropore d.  In local defects and/or pores, local corrosion can be promoted by galvanic effects.  This type of hard coatings is useless for anticorrosion purposes.  As perspective anticorrosion coatings, PVD-deposited Al-based coatings are frequent subjects of studies.  Similarly to Cd coatings, they usually provide sacrificial properties, which can be enhanced by alloying with Mg.  Tribol. properties and corrosion resistance can be enhanced by alloying with Mo.  Given the excellent flexibility, adaptability of PVD technol. and its ability to deposit multilayers or graded coatings, new coatings with functional properties comparable with traditional anticorrosion coating systems could be developed.

Blended fuel comprising 23 wt.% polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) and 77 wt.% brown coal was gasified in an atm. fluidized bed gasifier of lab.-scale.  The gasification agent was composed of 10 vol.% O2 in bulk of nitrogen.  Thermal and texture analyses were carried out to det. the basic properties of the fuel components.  The influence of exptl. conditions, such as the fluidized bed and freeboard temps. on major and minor gas components and tar content, as well as features of the blended fuel gasification in comparison with the single coal gasification, were studied.  In the case of coal with PET gasification, only the fluidized bed temp. showed significant influence on CO, CO2, CH4 and H2 content in the producer gas, whereas the effect of the freeboard temp. was insignificant.  In single coal gasification both temps. had considerable and almost the same influence.  The content of minor components, such as ethane, ethylene, acetylene and benzene, was found to be more dependent on the freeboard temp. than on the fluidized bed temp.  It was obsd. that the higher the freeboard temps. get, the lower is the concn. of the minor components, with the exception of acetylene.  The abs. contents of almost all minor and tar components were approx. three times higher in blended fuel gasification than that in single coal gasification.  Finally, partition of carbon (char) and selected metals into bottom and cyclone ash in gasification of both fuels is discussed.

An in situ corrosion study of austenitic stainless steel 08CH18N10T in high temp. H2O was performed.  The material under study is used in the construction of steam generator of PWR (pressurized H2O reactor) nuclear power stations and is similar to AISI 321 stainless steel.  In situ 300-h tests were performed under autoclave conditions at 280° and 8 MPa and consisted of impedance measurements, polarization measurements and electrochem. noise measurements.  The expts. were performed in deionized H2O with the pH adjusted to 9.5, in the presence/absence of chlorides.  An addnl. modification of corrosivity was achieved by changing oxygen concn.  A detailed anal. of the impedance data is presented identifying in the impedance spectra contributions of oxide, corrosion reaction, double layer and diffusion process.  A good agreement was found between corrosion data from electrochem. impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and that from electrochem. noise (EN) measurements.  The oxide response cannot be attributed to the overall oxide layer but only to the part corresponding to the space charge layer, thus indicating the semi-conductive character of the oxide.

This work represents a study of environmentally assisted cracking in high temp. and high pressure conditions by Rising Displacement Tests (RDT).  It appeared that the crucial part of RDT was crack initiation point definition.  The aim of these expts. was threshold stress intensity factor KISCC, and threshold value calcd. from J integral KJSCC detn., crack growth kinetics detn. by ACPD technique, and evaluation of the influence of various displacement rates on tests results.  We tested two kinds of materials: reactor pressure steel 15ChNMFA and austenitic stainless steels A316H in various environments, primary circuit soln. VVER 1000 (15Ch2NMFA) and water soln. with defined Cl- concn. (100 mg/l in case of A316H stainless steel).  We used the ACPD technique for crack initiation and propagation observation.  The specimens were analyzed by optical microscopy and SEM after concluding of the expt.  Reactor pressure steel 15Ch2NMFA is susceptible to stress corrosion cracking.  Stress corrosion crack initiation and propagation was obsd. along the whole fracture surface.  We managed to det. that the threshold intensity factor KJSCC equals 63 MPa.m1/2.  We achieved good agreement with similar tests carried out in Nuclear Research Institute.  Expts. with stainless steel AISI 316H were only partly successful.  We achieved stress corrosion crack initiation in expts. with low displacement rates.  Problems appeared in Expts. with high displacement rates because of large plastic strain zone generation at the crack tip shortly after beginning the expt.

Compn. of an oxide corrosion scale on the inner surfaces of steam generator pipes was examd. by using Moesbauer spectroscopy and IR spectroscopy.  The scale compn. depended on operation conditions of power plants.  Both methods are suitable for detn. of genesis and morphol. of the scale.  The main components were magnetite and hematite.  The oxide scale was thin, compact, and cryst.

The inhibition of stress corrosion cracking of steels 22K and 0Ch18N10T in citric acid and sodium chloride was investigated.  The effect of dibenzylsulfoxide (I) and Na3PO4 inhibitors was established by means of the slow strain rate technique.  I decreases susceptibility of the steels to stress corrosion.  Na3PO4 inhibits stress corrosion of 22K, but increases the susceptibility of 0Ch18N10T steel to stress corrosion.

D.c. and a.c. polarog. data confirm that the corrosion inhibitor dibenzyl sulfoxide is reducible in its protonated form at the mercury electrode.  The two-electron redn. process yields dibenzyl sulfide as the major product.  Both oxidized and reduced forms are strongly adsorbed on mercury and exert inhibition properties for the hydrogen evolution reaction.

The work presents the use of the natural substances as inhibitors of corrosion.  These substances are food-industry products, semiproducts or wastes.  Electrochem. methods (polarization curves, EIS spectroscopy), wt.-loss method, and Moessbauer spectroscopy were used for studying inhibition behavior.  Expts. have shown that the best inhibitors among the substances are beery yeast, gelatin, bone glue and ext. from the spruce crust.  Org. natural substances are non-toxic and cheaper than com. inhibitors but are less biol. stable.

Selected amides of fatty acids with 16-18 carbon atoms in mol. and mol. wt. of 300-400 were investigated to find a perspective ecol. supplement to corrosion inhibitors used nowadays in acidic environments.  Wt.-loss, potentiodynamic polarization, impedance spectroscopy and hydrogen penetration were among the methods used in the study.  Results show that good protection can be expected from all org. compds. investigated.  Inhibition efficiency of 90-97% at room temp. can be expected.  Effectiveness is decreased with increasing temp.  Addn. of inhibitor into soln. also affects hydrogen transport through the carbon steel sheet material.

Pingo, M.; Vosta, J.; Pancir, J.; Haslingerova, I. Topological study of crack growth on iron crystal Applied Surface Science (1995), 90(3), 373-6.  

The aim of this work consists in theor. calcns. of the charge distribution in the crack of an Fe semi-infinite crystal by using the quantum topol. MO-LCAO method to formulate general ideas on corrosion mechanisms during the Stress Corrosion Cracking.  The model suggested describes the cracking by a successive removal of atoms in the direction of a slot formation.  It appears that at. charges are substantially changed in the course of slot formation which can cause the increase of the reactivity of corrosion particles as the crack is formed.

A quantum chem. topol. method was used to det. probable adsorption modes of propargyl alc. at an Fe surface.  Based on the results, the most probable adsorption mode is one in which both carbon atoms forming triple bonds interact with the surface Fe atom.  Another important finding is that the adsorption seems to be possible only at a surface partially covered by adsorbed H.  Chronoamperometric expts. were used to study current changes resulting from injection of inhibitor at different potentials.  Results support the relation between the presence of adsorbed H and inhibitor sorption and indicate that adsorption of propargyl alc. is reversible.

Electrochem. techniques (potentiodynamic polarization curves and electrochem. impedance spectroscopy (EIS)) were used to study the effect of dibenzyl sulfoxide adsorption on the dissoln. of iron in 5% hydrochloric acid.  To discuss different proposed mechanisms of dibenzyl sulfoxide adsorption at the iron surface a quantum chem. topol. method was used, which is suitable for studying the interaction of org. mols. with metal surfaces.  Based on the results of the topol. modeling, adsorption followed by redn. of dibenzyl sulfoxide to sulfide is most favorable.  EIS shows the possible effect dibenzyl sulfoxide has on the electrochem. desorption of adsorbed hydrogen.  Topol. studies indicate strengthening of the bond of the adsorbed hydrogen to the metal due to adsorption of the inhibitor.

Various org. substances were studied by electrochem. methods in acid environment (5% HCl) as corrosion inhibitors.  The most interesting substance proved to be propargyl alc. (PG), not only for its efficiency, but also for its action at the interface.  A quantum chem. approach was used to explain this activity.

Steels in a carbonate-contg. medium are passivated by enrichment of the medium by adding 150-1500 mg Fe3+/L.  Optionally, the enrichment is done by electrochem. generation of ions for 0.5-10 min at a c.d. of 0.5-10 A/m2.  Thus, C steel exposed to an aq. soln. contg. 20 K2CO3 and 10% KHCO3 was passivated by adding 500 mgFe3+/L soln. in the form of an EDTA complex at 65°.  The passivation was more efficient than that attained with conventional K2CrO4.

The corrosion inhibitor consists of abietic acid (I) 5-45, dibenzylsulfoxide (II) 0.5-7, heterocyclic N bases 10-30, condensation products of C2-8 alkenylamines and C8-22 fatty acids 5-50, aliph. C8-22 amines 0.5-7, and morpholine (III) 0.5-15 wt.%.  The corrosion inhibitor is sol. in org. solvents down to -15°, and condensation products of alkenylamine and fatty acids hydrolyzed at elevated temps. function also as corrosion inhibitors.  Thus, the corrosion inhibitor was prepd. by mixing a 5% II soln. in quinoline bases d. 243-253° 17, III 15, I 36, a condensation product of diethylenetriamine with fatty acids 25, and octadecylamine (as 10% soln. in EtOH) 7 wt.%.  The corrosion inhibitor was added to a model aq. soln. of AcOH, NaCl, and Na2S.  Efficiency of corrosion inhibition for C steel specimens was 97.1%.

The corrosion inhibitor consists of dibenzylsulfoxide (I) 0.5-10, heterocyclic N bases 10-40, C2-8 amines as an alkalization component 20-60, and optionally surfactants 0.5-35 wt.%.  The amines neutralize HCl(g), formed by hydrolysis of chlorides in petroleum during distn., to form noncorrosive alkylammonium chlorides which also have a synergistic effect on the adsorption components of the inhibitor (i.e., T + heterocyclic N bases).  The surfactants have also a synergistic effect.  Thus, 10 ppm corrosion inhibitor consisting of a 7% I soln. in quinoline bases b. 245-275° 30, diethylamine 50, and a condensation product of diethylenetriamine and oleic acid (as surfactant) 20 wt.% was added to a model soln. simulating a water condensate during atm. distn. of petroleum.  Efficiency of corrosion inhibition for C steel specimens was 96.4%.

The fatigue crack growth rate was studied in CSN 416445 steel exposed to stress corrosion in water in a lab. autoclave at 295°.  The kinetics of fatigue crack growth in a secondary water circuit (pH 9, dissolved O < 15 ppm) in a pressurized-water nuclear reactor were only insignificantly influenced by the corrosion medium.  Susceptibility of the steel to stress corrosion cracking was not obsd.  An increase of the dissolved O content to 8 ppm resulted in fatigue crack growth, esp. at low frequencies.  Stress corrosion cracking was identified as a major factor for degrdn. in the air-satd. environment.

The corrosion inhibitor contains 50-99.9 wt.% of benzotriazole, mercaptobenzothiazole (I), mercaptobenzimidazole or their derivs., and 0.1-50 wt.% of a surfactant contg. ≥1 quaternary ammonium compds., sulfosuccinic acid esters, alkylarylsuflfonates, heterocyclic N compds. (e.g., quinolines, isoquinolines, and pyridines), arom. sulfoxides, alkali metal phosphates, or alkali metal borates.  The corrosion inhibitor is suitable for protection of steel parts used in CO2 scrubbers, esp. during H manuf. by steam reforming of hydrocarbons.  The inhibitor is nontoxic, does not interfere with activators for the K2CO3 scrubbing soln., and is easily removed from the spent scrubbing soln. by pptn. with CO2+.  Thus, 200 ppm mixt. of I 75, quinoline distn. residue 15, and dimethylaurylbenzylammonium hydroxide 10 wt.% was added to a scrubbing soln. for CO2 removal.  The anticorrosion efficiency for steel parts was 99.4%.

Use of thiocyanato and mercapto compds. as corrosion inhibitors for 99.999% Fe in 5% HCl was evaluated by using polarization potentiodynamic curves.  The 4-thiocyanatoaniline, 6-aminothiophenol, and 4-thiocyanotolbenzoic acid had suitable inhibition properties.  According to quantum chem. data, the compds. in a nonprotonized state acted as electron donors during sorption on Fe.  The protonized forms of substituted anilines were considered in the quantum calcns.

Capacitance of the elec. double-layer in dependence of time is discussed from the standpoint of quantum chem.  Measurements were performed by the single pulse method at a no. of p-substituted anilines as inhibitors of iron corrosion in 6N hydrochloric acid at a temp. of 25° at the corrosion potential.  The values of HOMO orbital computed by the LCAO method to the considered compds. are in agreement with the capacitance measurement.  With lower sorption i.e. with lower inhibition, i.e. with increased capacitance value, the energy of the HOMO orbital decreased.

Vosta, J.; Hackerman, N. The dependence of capacitance on time in an acid inhibition corrosion process Corrosion Science (1990), 30(8-9), 949-50. 

The HOMO and double layer capacitance are given for para-substituted anilines (e.g. SH, SCN, NH2, OH, Br, COCH3, NO2, CH3, H, SO3H).  Corrosion measurements were performed by the single pulse method of these para-substituted inhibitors of Fe corrosion in 6N HCl at 25°.  With lower sorption, and consequent lower inhibition and increased capacitance value, the energy of the HOMO is on the decrease and hence the donor capability of this series of compds. is progressively less.

The corrosion inhibitor action of pyridine and its derivs. for 99.99% Fe in 5% HCl was investigated by using polarization potentiodynamic curves.  Isonicotinic acid nitrile and 4-acetyl pyridine were the best inhibitors.  To support the inhibiting action, the Hammett consts. were used and correlated with the Tafel slope in the cathodic and anodic parts.  The quantum chem. evaluation confirmed the accepting effect in the sorption of compds.

After cleaning with a surfactant and rinsing with demineralized H2O, Si rods are etched ≥5 min with H at ≥10 kPa and ≤15 L H/h-cm length.  The procedure is suitable for cleaning before crystal growing of polycryst. Si for semiconductors.  The resulting polycryst. Si is readily transformed to single-crystal Si.  Thus, Si rods prepd. by drawing from a Si melt in Ar, conventional cleaning with a 0.1-5% Na octadecenyl-8-sulfonate soln. in H2O at 60°, rinsing with distd. or demineralized H2O, and holding ≥24 h in a polyethylene bag at 60-80° were etched 30 min with H at 1180°, 10 kPa, and 15 L H/h-cm length.  After decreasing the temp. to 1100°, 0.1 mol fraction trichlorosilane was added.  After 60 min, the trichlorosilane mol. fraction was increased to 0.25, and polycryst.

After cleaning with pressurized water, brass heat exchange tubes (esp. condenser tubes in elec. power plants) are passivated by treatment with 0.5-5% H2SO4, HCl, and/or citric acid in the presence of corrosion inhibitors selected from 1,2,3-benzotriazole (I) 0.1, dibenzylsulfoxide (II) or quinoline 0.1, and/or benzimidazole (III) 0.1 g/L.  The passivated heat-exchanger tubes are flushed with purified water and passivated again for 1-6 h in aq. soln. contg. I 0.1, tannin 0.1, and coco fatty acid alkanolamides 0.5 g/h.  The passivation mixt. is suitable for protection during long shutdown periods, startup periods of new elec. power plant equipment involving frequent interruption of service, or as a const. addn. in the cooling circuit during service.  Thus, 0.6% H2SO4 soln. contg. I 0.1, II 0.1, and III 0.1 g/L was used for final cleaning of brass condenser tubes.  After draining the soln., the condenser was flushed with purified water until the effluent was neutral.  The tubes were then passivated by circulating aq. soln. contg.

The addn. of 50 mg/L Dukoin 10 (Czechoslovak dispersant) to circulating cooling water decreases corrosion of steel and stabilizes Ca and Mg thus decreasing the scale formation.  Since it contains no PO43-, the dispersant is ecol. more acceptable than the highly effective agents Nalco D 4513 or Aktiphos 652.  The Kurizet S 113 K dispersant is a less effective corrosion inhibitor than Dukoin 10, but it also containes no phosphates.

The corrosion inhibitors contg. H3PO4 or salt, carboxylic acid, and a surfactant prevent corrosion and fouling by cooling water in steel or brass pipes.  Thus, a mixt. contg. H3PO4 30 kg, Na3PO4 20, citric acid 5, and ethylene oxide-propylene oxide copolymer 45 kg was dispersed into 1000 m3 cooling water to show decreases of scale deposits by 80% and corrosion by 89% for steel pipes.

The corrosion of steel heat exchangers by cooling water is prevented by an inhibitor consisting of C2-3 alkylene oxide copolymers (250-3000 mol. wt.), such as ethylene oxide-propylene oxide copolymer 50-90, C2-8 alkanolamine phosphates, such as diethanolamine phosphate 5-30, and alk. polyphosphates, such as Na hexametaphosphate 0.5-20 wt.%. The inhibitor efficiency is increased by 0.5-10% C2-9 alkylphenol phosphate, such as nonylphenol phosphate, or C12-20 ethoxylated amine, such as ethoxylated hexadecylamine.  The inhibitor concn. is 3-100 g/m3.  Thus, 1000 m3 with water was treated with 1:1 ethylene oxide-propylene oxide copolymer 25, triethanolamine phosphate 15, and Na hexametaphosphate 10 kg to decrease the corrosion of steel by 85 and the deposition of org. substances and Ca salts by 70%.  Other components in various proportions were also used, such as Na tripolyphosphate, ethoxylated hexadecylamine, monoethanolamine or diethanolamine phosphate, and nonylphenol phosphate.

The corrosion resistance was studied of the ferritic steels Type 1Ch2M, Type W.St. Nr. 1.6770, and Type 15418.  These steels are used in fast reactor steam generators.  The changes of mech. properties were detd. from material loss.  All steels exhibited at 340-480° similar corrosion resistance.  The corrosion was dependent exponentially on temp, and the steels exhibited good resistance against stress corrosion cracking at ≤400° and a load of 80% of the limit σ0.2.  The corrosion resistance of steels is sufficient for the case of a steam generator accident.

The a.c. impedance method was used to study the adsorption of thiourea from adsorbing and nonadsorbing electrolyte solns. on a Hg electrode.  The impedance data were analyzed graphically and by using a computer.  The impedance of the a.c. circuits and the shapes of the frequency-impedance dependences were used to monitor the time dependence of the thiourea adsorption in the presence of adsorbing and nonadsorbing electrolytes and to det. the factors controlling sorption.  The kinetics of thiourea adsorption evidently is controlled by a mixed diffusion-kinetic process.  In the case of sorption from nonadsorbing electrolytes the kinetic component is relatively more significant.  The adsorption of thiourea from adsorbing electrolyte is controlled mainly by diffusion.

 Austenitic stainless steels e.g. 18-8 are sensitive to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in environments contg. Cl-, SO42-, OH-, etc., and therefore this study was made in 2.5M H2SO4 + 0.5M NaCl.  The exptl. work was concerned with the several known methods of detn. of SCC and results supported the view that SCC occurs in the Cl-/SO42- environments by destroying the protection layer and by anodic local dissolving.  The crack propagation rates (CPR) were calcd. in the active and passive regions and the effect of 10-2M K2CrO4 on the redn. of CPR is also discussed.

The mixt. was stirred at 60° for 2 h, cooled, and mixed with monoethanolamides of coconut acids 43 parts at 40°.  Using this mixt. in a brass cooler at 20 ppm in water gave 98% corrosion inhibition and 70% suppression of microbial growth.

The measurements of corrosion under convection by means of the rotating disk electrode (RDE) disclosed the possibility of using this electrochem. method for distinguishing the effect of corrosion inhibitors on the metal-medium interface for pitting corrosion.  The combination of potentiodynamic polarization measurements and the measurement of c.d. under const. potential proved to be good for the detn. of relatively more suitable inhibitors under given conditions.  The effect of inhibitors can be explained mainly by the oxidn. and chemisorption effects with simultaneous coverage of a large part of the area, and/or of the active corrosion sites, of the rotating disk Al samples.  When using the inhibitors, NaNO3 proved to be more effective against pitting corrosion than K2CrO4 in the concn. of 5 × 10-2M.

Inhibition of corrosion was studied.  Influence of structure on the inhibitor efficiency during sorption at the liq./solid interface was investigated.  The internal structure was detd. by using a quantum chem. calcn. method, boundary orbitals, and mol. diagrams.  Efficiency of the inhibitors was evaluated from polarization potentiodynamic curves and by measurement of the Faraday impedance.  Expts. were done with 4-aminobenzonitrile  [873-74-5] and 4-aminothiophenol  [1193-02-8] inhibitors and Fe wire.  Irreversibility of the reaction between the inhibitor and metal was explained by chemisorption.

The rotating double ring electrode (RDRE) was used to investigate some corrosion processes in 6N HCl.  The inhibitor mols. are considered from the quantum-chem. point of view.  The electrochem. and quantum-chem. data were correlated to give a more general picture of the nature of corrosion inhibition.  Much more exact measurements and evaluations of different inhibitors can be done by using the RDRE.  Both HOMO and LUMO are of great influence on chemisorption and inhibition activity of compds.  Therefore, strong electron donors and acceptors can act as good inhibitors by forming chem. bonds with the surface.  The results obtained from this type of investigation can be correlated directly with the evaluation of catalytic phenomena, esp. in flowing systems.

At the corrosion potential for Fe in 5% HCl, the sorption of dibenzyl sulfoxide is irreversible, the inhibiting reaction being proceeded by chemisorption.  The inhibiting action becomes a reversible reaction at more pos. potentials.  Capacitance and resistance becomes higher with decreasing frequency (10 kHz to 300 Hz) in the cathodic part of the polarization curve.

Both chromates and nitrates exhibit inhibition effects only when their concn. is higher than 10-3M.  Chromates at these concns. enhance the induction time but they do not affect the potential of repassivation.  Nitrates do not affect the induction time.  The c.d. on current-time curves did not reach 0.25 within 120 min when chromate concn. was >5 × 10-3M, in the case of nitrates concn. >10-2M being necessary for reaching the 0.25 c.d. limit but the time course of c.d. is then decreasing.  Breakdown potentials detd. by the potentiodynamic method are with increasing concn. of inhibitor shifted to pos. values more than when they are detd. by stationary methods.

Potentiokinetics polarization was used to det. the pitting potential Ep for steel in cooling water at 22 ± 2° and study the effect of inhibitors which produce a shift of Ep toward more pos. values.  The lowest concns. used for the individual inhibitors were as follows: Na6P26O18 2 × 10-5, K2CrO4 5 × 10-5, ZnSO4 10-4, Na2MoO4 2 × 10-4, ZnCl2 5 × 10-4, and NaNO2 10-3M and the initial Ep value for the cooling water (-180 mV vs. SCE) was increased by 20 up to 80 mV.  At higher concns. Ep continued to increase, the most pronounced effect being that of NaNO2 at concns. 2 × 10-2 and 5 × 10-2 M giving Ep values of 68 and 123 mV, resp.  At low concns. of the inhibitor corrosion does not increase but pitting may take place.  The concn. level is detd. by the salinity of the cooling water, esp. the content of Cl-, SO4-, NO3-, and HCO3 and the presence of org. compds. and microorganisms is also a factor.

To det. the mechanism of corrosion inhibition by org. materials, the electron structure of a set of org. compds. is studied and correlated with their electrochem. corrosion measurements.  The inhibition of corrosion of Fe in 5% HCl by p-substituted anilines with respect to quantum chem. is discussed.  Fe2+ ions originating from the dissoln. of Fe form complex Fe(Cl)64- ions on the metal surface at anodic centers.  The protonized aniline mols. are then electrostatically bonded to these complex ions.  Thus, a potential barrier is formed which prevents the corrosive medium from reacting with the metal surface.

Cyclic polymers of the type (XPO3)n provide (in combination with Zn and Cd salts) efficient inhibition of metal corrosion by mixts. contg. NaCl.  Upon contact with thawing snow or ice, (XPO3)n is hydrolyzed with opening of the polymer polyphosphate ring.  The resulting uncoiled chain reacts through its exposed OH groups with the metal surface and the Zn and/or Cd component present to produce (on the protected surface) a compact layer with a high ohmic resistance which prevents contact of the surface with the atm. and inhibits surface corrosion, while the Zn ions inhibit (in combination with polyphosphate) slot corrosion.  Recommended compn. of the mixt. is, e.g., NaCl 90, Na hexametaphosphate 6.6, and ZnSO4 3.4 parts by wt.  The corrosion preventing effects can be increased further by addn. of org. compds. with a chemisorption and electrostatic effect, viz. guanidine, urea, PhCN, or BzONa.

  Na hexametaphosphate (I) affords, in combination with Zn(II) or Cd(II) salts, an efficient protection of steel surfaces from ice-creep thawing mixts. contg. NaCl.  Upon contact with thawing ice, the cyclic I polymer is hydrolyzed with H2O yielding an open polymer polyphosphate chain which reacts through its OH groups with the Fe surface and Zn2+ or Cd2+ to give a compact protective coating with a high ohmic resistance.  The coating inhibits surface corrosion, while the polyphosphate-metal complex inhibits crack corrosion.  The protective effect is further enhanced by addn. of org. compds. with chemisorption and/or electrostatic inhibition effect (guanidine, urea, PhCN, BzONa).

  The corrosion inhibition by nitron with mesoionic structure was evaluated by using the LCAO method and studied exptl. for Fe (99.999% pure) in 5% HCl.  The inhibiting efficiency increases with increasing energy of the highest occupied MO due to the decrease of the ionization potential.  Certain positions in the nitron mol. characterized by increased electron d. can thus contribute with their own electrons to the bond formation between inhibitor and metal

H2SO4, as produced in the manuf. of TiO2, can be utilized as a steel pickling agent.  The kinetics of the pickling process was studied with both spent and pure acid used for treating homogenized scale samples and scaled or descaled steel plates.  The kinetic data obtained by chem. analyses of the solns. and by weighing the plates compared well with those based on the potentiometric detn. of corrosion currents.  In spent acid solns. the process of pickling always proceeded more slowly than in pure H2SO4 of the same concn. due to a higher ionic strength in the former; consequently, the most marked differences in the reaction rates were obsd. at the initial stage of pickling.  To attain a pickling efficiency equal to that of 12% pure H2SO4, a spent soln. contg. 15% H2SO4 (65°) must be used.

Vosta, J.; Eliasek, J. Corrosion inhibition from the aspect of quantum chemistry  Corrosion Science (1971), 11(4), 223-9.

Relative to the selection and quant. evaluation of corrosion inhibitors a study was made of quantum-chem. values and inhibition efficiency by using homologous series of pyridine N-oxides with various substituents in the γ-position with quantum-chem. values calcd. by the LCAO method.  Substances studied included those with Me2N, HS, CN, Me, and NO2 substituents.  Polarization curves were measured at 25° in 5% HCl.  Inhibition efficiency depended mostly upon the energy of the highest occupied MO (HOMO), k(1), which is a theoretical analog to the ionization potential of a substance, and the energy of the lowest free MO (LFMO), k(-1), which illustrates the electron affinity of the mol.  Inhibition efficiency increased with increased energy of the HOMO, i.e. with the decrease in the ionization potential so that the mol. acts as an electron donor when blocking the corrosion reaction.  Other values obtained by quantum-chem. calcn. (e.g. electron d., free valences, bond orders) verified these principal concepts.  Inhibitors with higher efficiency have even higher electron d. in the presumed inhibition centers which participate by their own electrons when forming a chem. bond with a metal; electrophilic substitution may take place in a reaction between metal and inhibitor.  Free valence values do not exclude the possibility of a radical reaction.  The most active site of the compds. assessed was the O in the N-O and S-O groups due to its min. at. localization energy and high values of electrophilic and radical superdelocalizability on the O atom.

The evaluation of boiler steel corrosion inhibitors by means of polarization curves and polarization resistance was studied.  Nitrone and some thiophene derivs. are very good corrosion inhibitors in a HCl medium.  Esp. nitrone which belongs among the mesoionic group of compds., proved to be the most efficient of them.  8,9-Dihydrothionaphthene dioxide was chosen because of its resemblance to dibenzyl sulfoxide in regard to S-O groups.  2-Aminopyridine was subjected to measurements in order to obtain some primary information on the behavior of this substance as corrosion inhibitor in a HCl medium.

 Piperidine was used as a volatile alkalization agent and corrosion inhibitor in a high-pressure steam-water circuit.  Piperidine is of sufficiently basic character, which makes it possible to decrease P2O5 content in boiler water to the 3 mg/l. level.  It achieved a 70-80% decrease of Fe level in the system, and is inactive with respect to Cu.  In the H-form of strongly acid cation exchangers piperidine is quant. sorbed as piperidinium cation and regeneration of exchanger is quite possible.

Mixts. of 1 part C18H37NH2 (I) and 0.01-1 part emulsifier are added at a rate 0.01-10 g agent/ton steam or 10-1000 g agent/ton feed water after the demineralization process.  Alkane- and arenesulfonyl chlorides, sulfosuccinates, and condensation products of fatty acids with ethylene oxide are suitable emulsifiers.  I forms in the ducts a protective lining which prevents the effect of corrosive media and blocks starting corrosion reactions on microcathodes and anodes.

Cation-exchanger beds in the piperidinium from have a very low selectivity coeff. for the piperidinium cation when the cation exchanger is in a neutral medium.  In combination with simultaneous alkalization of the feed-water with piperidine, there is provided quant. trapping of all metal ions that have gotten into the condensate by leakage or corrosion.

Combinations of 1 part piperidine nitrite (I) and 0.5-1 part volatile alk. agent show a synergistic effect.  The volatile compd. (NH3, cyclohexylamine, N2H4, piperidine, morpholine) blocks the initial corrosion process and initiates the evapn. of I, which affords a long-lasting protection.  The combination in concns. of 0.5-2 g/m2 Fe or Cu surface gives 80-100% protection for 100-200 days at 80% relative humidity.

 Corrosion in steam power and heating plants is prevented by addn. to the process water of 0.01 to 10 g./ton active ingredient of an emulsion consisting of 1 part by wt. higher aliphatic amine (primary, secondary, or tertiary) and 0.01 to 1.0 part by wt. emulsifier.  Preferred amines are octadecylamine, laurylamine, hexadecylamine, and dioctadecylamine.  Preferred emulsifiers are ethoxidized fatty acid, alkylpolyglycol ether, saccharose monostearate and polyethylene glycol 1500.  For the prevention of crevice corrosion 0.01 part by wt. ZnSO4 and 0.01 part by wt. P2O5 equiv. can be added.  Greater effectiveness over previous amine systems is claimed.

 A method for the detn. of low concn. of piperidine in aq. solns. and in the presence of NH3 is described.  To a 5-70 ml. sample was added M NaBr soln. and a soln. buffered at pH 8 contg. 1 part 0.33M KH2PO4 and 19 parts 0.33M Na2HPO4, so that the final minimal concns. were 0.1M Br- and 0.02M buffer.  The Br- reacts quant. with the piperidine to substitute H on N.  The excess Br- is then coulometrically titrated to det. indirectly the amt. of piperidine present in the sample.  In the presence of NH3, the sum of piperidine and NH3 is detd. coulometrically after similar treatment with Br-, and NH3 is then sep. detd. according to Nessler's photometric method.  The piperidine content results from the difference.  Piperidine concns. 3 detn.

Sulfolane (2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1,1-dioxythiophene) (I) was prepd. by catalytic hydrogenation of sulfolene in MeOH.  The hydrogenation was carried out in a rotating autoclave at 100° and with an initial charging pressure of 100 atm. H and was catalyzed by Raney Ni.  Sulfolene was prepd. by addn. of SO2 to butadiene with a yield of 93%.  The reaction was carried out in an autoclave at 100°.  After rectification, I b15 150-1° and d404 1.2533.  The gasoline fraction b. 80-150° was distd. from the primary gasoline fraction from Romashkhino petroleum.  Extn. expts. with the gasoline fraction showed that the distribution coeffs. of sulforous compds. contained in gasoline between the hydrocarbon phase and I are low.  The extn. capability of I for the removal of sulfurous compds. from petroleum fractions was therefore also low.  The greatest redn. in the overall S content, ∼50%, was attained by 8-stage countercurrent extn., but the solvent consumption was high and the raffinate yield low.  The expt. with 5-stage countercurrent extn. showed that when utilizing the solvent economically and maintaining high yields of raffinate, I has an extremely low desulfurizing effect.  Considering that I is a polar extn. agent, the ability of I to ext. the most polar type of S compd.-the mercaptan-from a hydrocarbon medium was studied.  The expts. were carried out with model mixts.; the hydrocarbon medium was represented by n-C7H16 and the sulfurous component by BuSH.  The phase equil. was measured in the 3 component system n-C7H16-I-BuSH for the whole range of component concn.  The distribution coeffs. of S compds. between I and the hydrocarbon phase were low and aromatic hydrocarbons were extd. together with the S compds.  I is a solvent of small efficiency for the given purpose and small selectivity for general application.

Piperidine is effective in concns. of 2 mg./l. in the alkali treatment and softening of boiler water and its use enables the phosphate concn. to be lowered to 3 mg. of P2O5/l.  It also protects the boiler against corrosion.
