This research investigated the inhibition behavior of Spondias mombin leaf (SML) extracts in 0.1 M HCl solution on mild steel at various concentrations and temperatures. Result revealed that the inhibition efficiency of the extract on the mild steel sheet increased with increasing concentration of the extract and decreased with increase in temperature. Therefore, the adsorption mechanism of the extract on the mild steel surface is physical. Calculated Correlation Coefficient (R2) values showed that the process followed Freundlich adsorption isotherm. The new temperature coefficient equation of adsorption mechanism was found to be appropriate.
