Cashew nut oil phenoxy carboxylic acetic acid derivative has been tested as a corrosion inhibitor for mild steel in 3% aqueous NaCl solution using weight loss method. Bangladesh CASHEW NUT OIL DERIVATIVE: AN ALTERNATIVE CORROSION INHIBITOR FOR MILD STEEL Khalida Binte Harun* and Tahrima Binte Rouf Department of Chemical Engineering. These toxic effects weight of the metallic substance. The corrosion inhibitor which after some treatment shows a good corrosion production method for cashew nut. hence each step of the procedure needs to be carried out with utmost precaution. E-mail: khalidabinte_harun@yahoo. BUET. The weight loss of the mild steel bar harmless. So. against corrosion can be achieved either by special Weight loss measuring method however. * Corresponding Author: Khalida Binte Harun. furnace where high temperature involved nut oil. the weight of the metal substances called corrosion inhibitors. These types of corrosion inhibitor also can be extracted using pressurized oil extraction are most widely used for heavy duty equipments such machine. . After the mild steel was used as metallic material. Potassium hydroxide was added to cashew as boiler. electrochemical method. devote more attention to metallic corrosion now a mixed flowing gas environment testing. day than before. anticorrosive activity. method. The protection of metals or alloys Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy etc. Here acid derivative for Cashew nut oil. The weight loss organic and synthetic compounds showed a good depends on the nature of corrosion environment. is the treatment of the medium to depress its aggressiveness easiest method. most of them are highly toxic concentration of environmental fluid. Dhaka-1000 Chairman of Bangladesh Council of Science and Industrial Research (BCSIR) Cashew nut oil and its derivatives have been known for producing effective corrosion inhibitors. Dept. water or soil in chemical or electrochemical reaction Different methods are available for this experiment. Waliuzzaman Visiting Faculty. BUET. Engg. For or by introducing into it small amounts of special corrosion on metal surface. Cashew nut oil contains phenolic resins. This indicates that Cashew nut oil is a potential corrosion inhibitor for mild steels in aqueous solutions. structure and to both human and environment. to form more stable compounds. attack of metals or alloys by their environment as air. Dhaka Dr. was measured with time. Then chloro acetic acid was added which and in alkaline and salt environment. 29-30 December. Dhaka. These inhibitors separated potassium ion and produced phenolic acetic can be used for different types of carbon steel. It xylene separation. INTRODUCTION preparation of the corrosion inhibitor. it is necessary Corrosion is a surface phenomenon known as the to examine the corrosion resistant characteristics. is a very delicate resistivity. Proceedings of the International Conference on Chemical Engineering 2011 ICChE2011. 3% sodium chloride have led to the use of natural products as solution was used here as aqueous solution or anticorrosion agents which are eco-friendly and environment. It was found that cashew nut oil phenoxy carboxylic acetic acid derivative reduces the electrochemical processes taking place on mild steel undergoing corrosion to a great extent. specially the Cashew nut oil was extracted by soxhlet extractor. A number of sheet or bar decreases gradually.. of Chem. It is felt necessary to ASTM and NACE method. this method was used here.
