AbstractBenzotriazole (BTAH) was used for the first time to inhibit the corrosion of Al-B4C composites in a NaCl solution. Its corrosion inhibition effect was systematically investigated as a function of BTAH concentrations, volume fractions of B4C particles and immersion time by using potentiodynamic polarization, electrochemical impedance and infrared reflection adsorption spectroscopy techniques. It was found that BTAH is a good corrosion inhibitor for the Al-B4C MMCs in a 3.5 g L-1 NaCl solution, and its inhibition efficiency increased with increasing BTAH concentration. For the same BTAH concentration and immersion time, higher B 4C volume fraction leads to higher corrosion inhibition efficiency. The inhibition efficiency of benzotriazole was also influenced by the immersion time: the inhibition efficiency increases with the immersion time in the first 18 h. However, prolonging the immersion time leads to a decrease in the inhibition efficiency. As the BTAH was an inhibitor with a cathodic character and it inhibited corrosion by physically adsorbing on B4C particles at the composite surface, it obeyed the Freundlich adsorption isotherm. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
