Abstract: Based on molecular design, a tailored cationic type of imidazoline quaternaryammoniumsalt (IQS) corrosion inhibitor used for reinforced concrete was synthesized. Further, its inhibition effect on the corrosion of steel reinforcement in the simulated concrete pore solution containing3.5wt. % NaCl was characterized by electrochemical measurements (potentio-dynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy) and surface analysis (scanning electronic microscopy and X-ray diffraction). The electrochemical results indicated thatin the presence of 1% IQS, although the inhibition efficiency of carbon steel was slightly lower compared to that in the presence of 2% sodium nitrite (normally used inorganic corrosion inhibitors), it was higher than that in the presence of 2% alcohol-amine organic corrosion inhibitors. The surface analysis showed that after 28 days of immersion, no corrosion products were found on the surface of steel electrode in the presence of 1% IQS, like that in presence of 2% sodium nitrite, while abundant corrosion products were visible in the reference specimen and in the specimen in the presence of 2% alcohol-amine.
