Corrosion study of carbon steel in CO 2 loaded solution of N-methyldiethanolamine and L-arginine mixtures
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents an electrochemical corrosion investigation of carbon steel in blends of methyldiethanolamine (MDEA) and arginine (ARG) at different molar concentrations and solvent proportions. The effects of three main parameters which are CO 2 partial pressure, solution temperature and MDEA/ARG proportions ratio were studied. The selected temperatures range varied from 293 to 323 K and the CO 2 partial pressure was in the range of 49-98 kPa. The results showed that the corrosion rate increased with increased CO 2 partial pressure and solution temperature. However, when ARG was added to MDEA, it was found that ARG acts as an inhibitor, the higher ARG fraction in the mixture, the more inhibition effect was observed. SEM, XRD, and XPS techniques were used to characterize the corroded surfaces; analysis of the corrosion products of the specimen surface confirmed the formation of FeCO 3 protective layer.
