Abstract: The inhibition mechanism of 2-aminopyrimidine (2-AP) for copper corrosion in chloride solutions with various pH values has been investigated using XPS, X-AES, SERS and electrochemical techniques. The results showed that the 2-AP is a better inhibitor for the copper corrosion in acidic solutions, less effective in neutral solutions and completely ineffective in basic solutions. In acidic solutions a protective polymeric complex film consisting of 2-AP, Cl~- and surface copper atoms(or cations) on the copper surface, which is stable in a wide potential range, is responsible for the corrosion inhibition of copper.
