Halide ions are found to enhance the inhibition performance of amines due to enhanced adsorption of amines by the adsorbed halide ions on the metal surface. In this work, the synergistic action of halide ions on the corrosion inhibition of iron in 0.5M H2SO4 by diphenylamine has been found out by electrochemical impedance and polarization methods. Analysis of impedance data has been made with equivalent circuit with constant phase angle element for calculation of double layer capacitance values. Experiments have been carried out in the concentration range of 100–1000 ppm of diphenylamine in the presence of 0.5–1.0×10−3M of halide ions. Diphenylamine is found to be a cathodic inhibitor and the inhibition efficiency of about 65% is obtained at 1000 ppm. The anodic and cathodic Tafel slopes in the presence of diphenylamine alone and with halide ions are 65±5 and 105±5mV, respectively. Diphenylamine inhibits corrosion by adsorption and the surface coverage values are increased considerably in the presence of halide ions. In the presence of iodide ions, the inhibition efficiency of diphenylamine at 100 ppm is increased to more than 90%. In the case of other halide ions, the inhibition efficiency of diphenylamine in increased to 80% at 1000 ppm. The order of synergism of halide ions is I−�Br− >Cl−. The highest synergistic effect of iodide ions is due to chemisorption with metal surface due to its larger size and ease of polarizability.
