Article title

Experimental and computational study of levofloxacin as corrosion inhibitor for carbon steel in acidic media

Title variants
Languages of publication
The corrosion inhibition behaviour of levofloxacin was investigated on carbon steel in 2 M HCl solution using potentiodynamic polarization measurement and Quantum chemical studies. The inhibitive effects of the studied compound increases with increasing concentration and increased with increasing temperature, the study revealed that levofloxacin is a mixed-type corrosion inhibitor. The adsorption of levofloxacin on carbon steel surface obey Langmuir adsorption isotherm and involve physical adsorption mechanism. Quantum chemical studies corroborate experimental results.
