Mass loss and Scanning Electron Microscope method (SEM) have been used to study the corrosion inhibition efficiency on mild steel and aluminium using synthesized inhibitors i.e. N-Benzylidene aniline (CI1) and N-Benzylidene 4-methylaniline (CI2) in Trichloroacetic acid (TCAA). Study reveals that both mild steel and aluminium are prone to corrosion in organic acid like TCAA. Out of these two metals, aluminium is more vigorously corroded by the TCAA in comparison to mild steel in same conditions
