Abstract: The corrosion inhibition effect of cathodic surfactant, namely: dodecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (DTAB) and zinc ions, have been used as corrosion inhibitor for carbon steel in well water. Surface analysis using SEM, EDAX and AFM shows a significant morphological improvement on the carbon steel surface with the addition of inhibitors. FTIR spectra revealed the interaction between inhibitor molecules and carbon steel surface.
Keywords: AFM, Inhibitor, SEM-EDAX, Weight loss,
