Corrosion is one of the major reasons for wear and tear of equipments. It is also responsible for reducing the life of equipments. Many accidents occur because of failure of pipelines due to corrosion. There are many methods to minimize corrosion. Cathodic protection, use of inhibitors, use of anticorrosive coatings is few methods used for this purpose. The presence of moisture in the atmosphere favours the corrosion. Various investigators have carried out research on various aspects of corrosion. Humidity and temperature are two important parameters in addition to metal properties and chemicals involved in the process. Use of green inhibitors is new trend in corrosion control. The current review summarizes research carried out on corrosion and its control.
Key words: pH, temperature, pitting corrosion, galvanic corrosion, inhibitors, metals.
