The inhibition of corrosion of mild steel in 0.01-0.1 N HCl solutions by N-cyclohexyl-N′-phenyl thiourea (CPTU) has been studied using potentiodynamic polarization technique. Results obtained reveal that CPTU performs excellently as anodic inhibitor for mild steel in HCl solution. The inhibitor functions through adsorption following Temkins' adsorption isotherm. The influence of parameters like temperature, hydrochloric acid concentration and inhibitor concentration on the corrosion of mild steel has also been studied.
