The corrosion inhibition properties of cefradine (CFD) for mild steel corrosion in HCl solution were analysed by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), potentiodynamic polarization and gravimetric methods. Potentiodynamic polarization study clearly revealed that cefradine acted as mixed type inhibitor. The experimental data showed a frequency distribution and therefore a modelling element with frequency dispersion behaviour, a constant phase element (CPE) has been used. The various thermodynamic parameters of dissolution and adsorption processes were evaluated in order to elaborate adsorption mechanism. Adsorption of inhibitor obeyed Langmuir adsorption isotherm model.
