The inhibition efficiency of plumbago europaea extract on the corrosion of aluminum in 1.0M NaOH was investigated using weight loss technique. The presence of plumbago europaea extract inhibited the corrosion of aluminum in the test solution. The inhibition efficiency increased with increasing plant concentration and increased with increasing temperature and reaches a maximum value of 96.8% with the highest extract concentration 20 ppm at 50˚C. The experimental data complied to langmuir, temkin
