Abstract: The adsorption, protective and passivating effect of sodium salts of succinic, itaconic and a blend of alkenylsuccinic acids (SKAP-25) on the oxidized surface of copper and copper–nickel alloy MNZh5-1 in neutral buffer and chloride solutions was studied. The adsorption of sodium succinate and itaconate is adequately described by the full Temkin isotherm equation with the value of the free energy of adsorption (–ΔGa0) on oxidized copper at E=0.0 V being 77.4 and 65.4 kJ/mol, respectively. The values of (–ΔGa0) for these corrosion inhibitors on the pre-oxidized MNZh5-1 alloy electrode are 89.3 and 58.3 kJ/mol, respectively. Such values of (–ΔGa0) suggest chemisorption interaction of these organic anions with the oxidized surface of copper and its alloy. Corrosion tests of copper and alloy MNZh5-1 in solutions for 7 days showed that a formulation of SKAP with the sodium salt of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole with a 7.1:1.0 mass ratio of the components was the best corrosion inhibitor.
