The corrosion behaviour of mild steel in acidic solutions and inhibition efficiency of N-benzyldimethylamine have been evaluated by galvanostatic polarisation method. In this investigation 0.1 Nto1NHCI andH2S04 acids and 1 x 10-4 M to 5 X 10-3 M N-benzyldimethyl amine were used. It has been found that N-benzyldimethylamine is very effective inhibitor for both HCI and H2S04 medium. The inhibitor efficiency 1 N HCI and H2S04 acids were found to be 80% in 1 N concentrations of acids with 5 x 10-3 M concentration of inhibitor. This inhibition efficiency on mild steel is dependent on concentration of inhibitor and also the efficiency increases with the increasing concentration of acids.
