The main objective of the present work involved the study of the inhibitive properties of organic product as environmentally friendly as copper corrosion inhibitor, in 3% NaCl solution. The effectiveness of Mono-hydroxamic acid (C12N)used as a corrosion inhibitor for copper in 3% NaClwas investigated by weight loss and electrochemical techniques. Surfaces were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed that the chemical investigated provided efficient inhibition of copper corrosion. The inhibition efficiency improved with increasing the inhibitor concentration. C12N acts mainly as a cathodic-type inhibitor.
