Abstract: The anticorrosion and inhibiting mechanism for the self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (ATA) on the surface of brass had been investigated by electrochemical method, as well as its adsorption behavior. The results indicated that ATA was liable to interact with brass forming SAMs on the surface of brass. The SAMs changed the structure of the electric-double layer. The SAMs restrained the process of anodic oxidation and had well anticorrosion effect. It was in good agreement with the results by EIS and polarization curve methods. The results from electrochemical measurements indicated that the corrosion resistance for brass electrode was improved by the ATASAMs. Adsorption of the ATASAMs was found to followthe Langmuir’s adsorption isotherm, and the adsorption mechanismwas typical chemisorption.
