The inhibition behavior of ethyl-2-phenyl hydrozono-3-oxobutyrate on the corrosion of 6061 Al alloy/SiCp composite in 0.1, 0.5 and 1 N hydrochloric acid solution at four different temperatures (30-60 °C) has been investigated using potentiostatic polarization techniques and weight loss method. The results indicated that the corrosion inhibition efficiency and the extent of surface coverage were increased with the increase in inhibitor concentration up to a critical concentration. The adsorption of the inhibitor compound on the composite surface was found to obey Temkins' and Langmuir adsorption isotherms. The potentiostatic polarization results have revealed that oxobutyrate acts as an efficient cathodic inhibitor for the corrosion of 6061 Al alloy/SiCp composite in HCl medium. The thermodynamic parameters for the corrosion and adsorption processes were determined.
