The inhibition effect of glutamic acid towards the corrosion of X65 steel in hydrochloric acid solution(10%) was investigated using polarization techniques、electrochemical impedance spectroscopy(EIS) and SEM.The corrosion rate,corrosion potential(Ecoor),polarization resistance(Rp) and inhibition efficiency(η) were determined.The results revealed that the inhibitor is a mixed type inhibitor.It has promising corrosion inhibition efficiency at low concentrations.The inhibition efficiency(η) increased with increasing the concentration.The maximum inhibition efficiency appeared at 0.3 g·L-1.
