Cationic Surfactants as Corrosion Inhibitors under H2S environment
The use of chemical inhibitors to decrease the rate of corrosion processes is quite varied.
In the oil extraction and processing industries, inhibitors have always been considered to be the first line of defense against corrosion.
A great number of scientific studies have been devoted to the subject of corrosion inhibitors.Cationic surfactants represent only 5-6% of the total surfactant production.
However they are extremely useful for some specific uses, because of their peculiar properties .They are not good detergents nor foaming agents, and they cannot be mixed in formulations which contain anionic surfactants
