Abstract: Using complex physical and chemical methods, a comparative estimation of the capability of benzotriazole (BTAH) to act as an inhibitor of copper local activation (LA) was carried out in alkaline–nitrate and alkaline–sulphate solutions in a temperature range of 20–60°C. It was shown that in both systems studied, BTAH hinders copper LA according to an adsorption–polymerization mechanism. Furthermore, the effect is the stronger, the higher the temperature of the working solution is.
