The synergetic adsorption, antifogging and corrosion inhibition properties of polyaspartate (PASP) and dodecane phenol polyoxyethylene ether (OP-10) on A3 steel were investigated in 6 mol·L-1 HCl by weight loss and electrochemical techniques. Results showed that the combined inhibitor strongly inhibited the corrosion of A3 carbon steel in HCl. The efficiencies of corrosion inhibition and antifogging using 20 g·L-1 PASP were 94% and 83% , respectively. The inhibition efficiency decreased as the system temperature increased. The adsorption behavior of the combined inhibitor on the surface of the steel followed the amended Langmuir adsorption isotherm equation. The adsorption resulted in an entropy decrease and was a spontaneous and exothermic process. The combined inhibitors were anodic inhibitors.
