Effects of an inhibitor on the corrosion of Al and Al alloys in Cl and Cu2+ solutions at 363 K have been investigated by gravimetry and analyses of surfaces and vertical cross sections of specimens with a scanning electron microscope and an energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer. Addition of the inhibitor to the Cu2+ solution inhibited effectively the corrosion of Al and Al alloys, while inhibitor addition to the Cl solution didnʼt at all. The inhibitive effect in the Cu2+ solution can be explained in terms of the SiO2 film formation on the specimen, leading to the suppression of Cu deposition.
