The inhibition efficiency of aniline on zinc corrosion of zinc in (HNO3 + H2SO4) binary acid mixture has been studied by weight loss method and polarization technique. Corrosion rate increases with the concentration of acid mixture and the temperature. Inhibition efficiency (I.E.) of aniline increases with the concentration of inhibitor while decreases with the increase in concentration of acid mixture. As temperature increases corrosion rate increases whereas percentage of I.E. decreases. The plot of log (θ/1-θ) versus log C results in a straight line suggest that the inhibitor cover both the anodic and cathodic regions through general adsorption following Longmuir isotherm. Galvenostatic polarization curves show polarization of both anodes as well as cathodes.
