Abstract: The inhibitive properties of a quaternary ammonium salt displayed in case of mild steel corrosion in 1 M HCl are studied in the temperature range of 30–60°C. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and polarization resistance method are applied. A structural model describing the processes at the interface is advanced and its parameters are estimated. The data on the temperature effect in inhibitor’s presence and absence are juxtaposed. An interpretation of the results obtained is suggested.
