Abstract : The inhibition efficiency of acid extract of leaves of Citrus aurantiifolia [CAL] plant on the corrosion of mild steel in 1 M HCl was investigated by weight loss measurements and electrochemical studies. The corrosion rate of mild steel and the inhibition efficiencies of the extract were calculated. The results obtained show that the extract could serve as an effective inhibitor for the corrosion of mild steel in HCl media. Inhibition was found to increase with increasing concentration of the plant extract.
