The continuous search for better corrosion inhibitors, due to vast differences in the media encountered in industry remains a focal point in corrosion control. The use of organic compounds to inhibit corrosion has assumed great significance due to their application in preventing corrosion under various corrosive environments. These compounds have great potential to inhibit aqueous corrosion due to film formation by adsorption on the metal surface. This paper reviews the inhibitive effect of thiourea and thiadiazole derivatives. This group of organosulphur and heterocyclic compounds and derivatives has important theoretical and practical applications, but their inhibition mechanism is not fully understood, despite extensive study. The effect of these compounds on the corrosion of metallic alloys was evaluated through assessment of various journals and experimental techniques. The corrosion rate was found to be a function of different variables. Due attention was paid to the systematic study of inhibitor action of derivatives with much emphasis on the functional groups of the molecular structure. From the comprehensive discourse presented, it is concluded that the derivatives fulfill the basic requirements for consideration as an efficient corrosion inhibitor.
