Abstract  The effect of pH value on the adsorption behavior and inhibition mechanism of dodecylamine for carbon dioxide corrosion of carbon steel was investigated by electrochemical methods and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results indicated that the pH value of the solution played the crucial role to the adsorption behavior and inhibition mechanismof dodecylamine. The inhibition performance of dodecylamine on carbon steel was dependent on the pH value and the inhibition efficiency increased with the increase of pH value. At pH 4.9, dodecylamine mainly inhibited the cathode process of the corrosion. The adsorption energy of dodecylamine on the metal surface was lower. The adsorption of dodecylamine on the metal surface was not stable and an anode desorption phenomenon could be observed. Hence, dodecylamine did not provide effective inhibition to the corrosion. While at pH 6.9, it had much higher adsorption energy. Dodecylamine adsorbed on the metal surface tightly and formed the effective diffusion barrier which inhibited both the cathode and anode processes effectively.
