In this paper the usefulness of small amplitude cyclic voltammetry (S.A.C.V.) for the evaluation of acid inhib~tors for mild steel in three different acids, vlz. hydrochloric, sulphuric and perchloric acids has been examined in terms of the role played by scan rate and the number of cycles. The results are compared with those obtained by Tafel extrapolation methods and weight loss method. A number of aromatic aldehydes, furfuraldehyde and crotonaldehyde have been studied.
