In this research project, the various nail were subjected to six environments so as to check the effect of the environments on corrosion of the nails.
Two sets of nails were used; normal nail and concrete nail. Six of each type while the other not coated.
The research was carried out in the physical chemical laboratory of the institute of management and technology.
The environments used are acidic solution, alkaline solution, salt solution, boiled water, air medium and lubricating oil medium, which served as a control medium.
It was observed from the graphs of the weight of metal against time, that acidic environment gave rise to corrosion at a faster rate that other environment. It was also observed that normal nails gave rise to corrosion at a faster rate than concrete nail.
Coating of metals was also concluded to be a method of preventing the rate of corrosion of metals even though it does not stop corrosion.

This project covers a study of the effect of seawater corrosion on 0.34% and 0.36% carbon steel compositions. Two (2) specimens (steel rods) of length 150mm (each) for both steel compositions were obtained. Out of each was gotten four (4) specimens of 10mm length, 10mm diameter and two (2) specimens of 50mm length, 10mm diameter. This yielded a... Continue Reading
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY 1.1.1 CORROSION Corrosion is defined as a natural process, which converts refined metal to their more stable oxide. It is the gradual destruction or degradation of materials (usually metals) by chemical reaction with their environment which are most likely inevitable. Corrosion is a natural and... Continue Reading
SYNERGISTIC EFFECT OF DATURA STRAMONIUM LEAVES EXTRACT - Z2n+ ON THE CORROSION INHIBITION OF MILD WELLWATER ABSTRACT The synergistic effect of Datura stramonium leaves extract and Zn2+ in the corrosion inhibition of mild steel in aqueous medium (100ml well water) was investigated in this project. The corrosion inhibition studies were carried out... Continue Reading

ABSTRACT In early times, we believed that we had an unlimited abundance of land and resources. Today, however, the resources in the world show in greater or lesser degree, our carelessness and negligence in using them. The problem associated with contaminated sites now assume increasing prominence in many countries. Contaminated lands generally... Continue Reading
