Natural menthol was coated on craft paper by impregnation and studied as volatile corrosion inhibitor for copper in hydrochloric acid environment. The effect of menthol on copper corrosion was studied by gravimetric and electrochemical methods such as potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance measurements. The results indicate that menthol adsorbs on the metal surface, which protects copper against further corrosion. The adsorption behaviour of menthol on copper surface was found to obey Temkin’s adsorption isotherm.
