    Abstract: The weight-loss technique was used to study the inhibition of the corrosion of mild steel in 0.7M, 1.2M and 2.2M HCl by thoroughly crushed fresh-leaves of Voacanga Africana. The corrosion rate was observed to increase with increase in the concentration of acid. The maximum inhibition efficiency of 69.80% was obtained when thoroughly crushed leaves ... Show More
