Paper Abstract

Second harmonic generation (SHG) has been used to characterise the chemical composition of an iron or mild steel electrode. SHG has then been used to follow the adsorption of a representative corrosion inhibitor, oleic imidazoline, onto the surface. Information about the adsorption kinetics and thermodynamics is obtained. Extension of these experiments to corrosive media is also discussed.
