Inhibitive Action of Ellagic Acid on Corrosion Behavior of ( 316 L SS ) in Simulated Body Fluid

Abstract

Potentiodynamic polarization measurements were used to study the effect ofEllagic acid on biocorrosion of ( 316 L SS ) in Simulated body fluid (Ringer Solution)was used as the electrolyte .The temperature of the polarization test cell wasmaintained at 37±1OC by thermo stated water bath to simulate the human body .Theresult from corrosion behavior investigated by electrochemical measurements appearthe corrosion current density of ( 316 L SS ) specimens in Ringer solution containing Ellagic acid was much lower than the values obtained in Ringer solution withoutEllagic acid .
