The purpose of the investigation was to delineate the role played by surface active agents in mass transfer-controlled corrosion reactions in a saline environment. Major effort was directed toward dynamic systems where the metal surface moves relative to the saline solution. The galvanostatic polarization technique has been used to detect the specific role of concentration and chain length of amine surfactants in the corrosion reaction at the metal-aqueous solution interface. The chain length effect, i.e. increased corrosion inhibition with increased chain length, is considered to be related to hemi-micelle formation or two- dimensional condensation of adsorbed surfactant.
