Abstract: The efficiency of ethoxy higher aliphatic amines (EOAs) against carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide corrosion and hydrogen permeation into carbon steel in acid solutions has been studied. The influence of the number of ethoxy groups (2, 5 and 14), the length of the hydrocarbon radical (R = C10 –C13 and R = C17 –C20), medium acidity (0.005–0.05 M HCl), and electrode potential was investigated. Concurrently, the influence of higher aliphatic amine bottoms (emulgin) that are a mixture of primary and secondary aliphatic amines was studied. The protective efficiency of EOAs reaches 95–99.9%, hydrogen permeation decreases both at the corrosion potential and under conditions of anodic and cathodic polarization of the steel electrode. The inhibiting effect of emulgin is 96–97%.
