Abstract

Green material is a beneficial material in combating corrosion on any metallic structure. Since it is a green material, hence it can be classified as an environmental friendly material. Environmental friendly material (eco-friendly) is the best material choice to be opted for corrosion mitigation. Eco-friendly materials produce no pollution to the environment, safe to be used because of organic materials, made from a waste product or a natural resource, cheap, wide range of availability, renewable resource, free of heavy metals and free of toxic compounds. Therefore, numerous research studies have been done worldwide by researchers as to study the effectiveness in term of inhibition efficiency of the eco-friendly material as corrosion mitigation method. This review highlighted a few eco-friendly materials such as rice husk, egg shell, banana peel and henna that have been tested successfully in the previous research studies as corrosion prevention method. Many of related and relevant research articles to this review topic have been included as to review the inhibition efficiency of the eco-friendly materials in corrosion mitigation. The result showed that the inhibition efficiency for all green materials reviewed was mainly above 90%. This showed that the green materials acted as a remarkable material either as a direct corrosion inhibitor or incorporated into a coating. The corrosion rate on metal was decreased as the molecules of green material being absorbed on the metal surface, creating a protective barrier and protected the metal surface from corrosion attack. This review provided the significant and valuable information regarding the application of eco-friendly material as corrosion mitigation because the facts in this review have indicated that the eco-friendly materials have an excellent inhibition efficiency for corrosion protection purpose on different metals in various environments
