The leaves of Vitis vinifera has been tried as a green corrosion inhibitor for mild
steel in 1 M HCl. Its inhibitive performance was studied using mass loss method and
Electrochemical methods namely potentiodynamic polarization and AC impedance method.
The performance of the inhibitor at different time periods, different concentrations of the
inhibitor and at various temperatures has been studied. The studies revealed that Vitis
vinifera act as a good inhibitor in 1M HCl medium and the maximum efficiency was 97.31
