In the present paper, the methanol extract from the leaves of Pistacia terebinthus L. (PT) was characterized by GC/MS analysis. It was tested as a corrosion inhibitor for iron in a 3% NaCl solution, using gravimetric measurements and electrochemical methods (potentiodynamic polarizations and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy). Fourteen compounds were identified; the major compounds are palmitic acid (31.5%), stearic acid (25.7%) and oleic acid (11.3%). The data showed that the tested

The constituents of the PT extract affected polarization resistance (Rp) and corrosion current density (icorr), demonstrating that the proposed inhibitor hinders corrosion reactions. The results obtained at 200 ppm are very interesting, and reach maximum values of 96.96%, 89% and 64.82%, respectively, which were confirmed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), coupled with energy scattering of X-ray spectroscopy (EDX).
