Abstract

Corrosion inhibition of concrete steel-reinforcement in 3.5% NaCl, simulating saline/marine environment, by the leaf extract of Rhizophora mangle L. was studied in this paper. For this, duplicated specimens of steel-reinforced concrete slabs, admixed with different concentrations of the leaf extract, were immersed in the corrosive test-medium. Analyses, as per ASTM G16-95 R04, of the electrochemical test-results identified 0.0833% Rhizophora mangle L., per weight of cement, with optimal inhibition efficiency η = 95.73±0.15%. The study established a decrease in inhibition effectiveness as concentration of Rhizophora mangle L. increases. © (2015) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
