The corrosion inhibition effects of newly synthesised SchiffÂs bases from2- hydrazinobenzimidazole for copper in 1N sulphuric acid was evaluated using weight loss and Tafel polarisaton method. The interaction of these molecules with the copper was studied by FTIR method. The inhibitive action of the SchiffÂs bases was due to their adsorption on the metal surface. The inhibitor efficiency was found to depend on the charge density on the atoms of the functional group. The SchiffÂs bases were found to be acting as anodic inhibitors.
