Abstract—The experiment for API grade steel has been carried out by using weight loss measurement
technique. All the experiments were carried out in an autoclave at varying temperature and a
fixed partial pressure of carbon dioxide. The different concentration of imidazoline as organic
inhibitor has been added in the solution to know the inhibition effect on the metal surface. The
results indicated that addition of 40 ppm of inhibitor showed the higher efficiency due to the
formation of more adhered and protective film over the metal surface. The exposed samples
were characterized by using various techniques such as x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and
scanning electron microscopy
