The effects of Aloe vera extract on corrosion and kinetics of corrosion process of zinc in HCl solution

The effect of the extract of Aloe vera leaves on the corrosion of zinc in 2 M HCl solution was studied using weight loss technique. A. vera extract inhibited the corrosion of zinc in 2 M HCl solution and the inhibition efficiency increased with increasing concentration of the extract but decreased with increasing temperature. The adsorption of the inhibitor molecules on zinc surface was in accordance with Langmuir adsorption isotherm. A first-order kinetics relationship with respect to zinc was obtained with and without the extract from the kinetics treatment of the data.
