    • Abstract


      A new corrosion inhibitor, viz. 3-ethyl-6-méthyl-quinoxalin-2-one, 1-benzyl-6-methyl-quinoxalin- 2-one, 2-benzyloxy-3,6-dimethyl-quinoxaline, 1-benzyl-3-methyl-quinoxalin-2-one, were synthesized in the laboratory. Their influence on the inhibition on corrosion of bronze in aqueous chloride solution (3% NaCl) was studied by electrochemical polarization methods and weight-loss measurements. The impact of temperature on the effectiveness of the substances mentioned above has been determined between 20 and 60°C. The results showed that the corrosion resistance was greatly enhanced in the presence of inhibitor and that the effectiveness depends on some physicochemical properties of the molecule, related to its functional groups. These compounds act through the formation of a protective film on the surface of the alloy.
