Alizarin yellow GG (AYGG) is a natural dye used as a corrosion inhibitor. The inhibitive action of this compound against corrosion of carbon steel in hydrochloric acid solution (1M concentration), has been tested using the weight loss measurements and electrochemical measurements techniques. The results indicates this compound is a good inhibitor for carbon steel in hydrochloric acid solution, and the inhibition efficiency increased as the concentration of this compound increased. Also the results revealed as the temperature increased, efficiency and corrosion activation energies are increased. On the basis of the experimentally determined activation energy values, the addition of this compound can be considered chemisorption adsorbed.
