Abstract

A theoretical study on corrosion inhibitors was done by quantum calculations includes semi-empirical PM3 and Density Functional Theory (DFT) methods based on B3LYP/6311++G (2d,2P). Benzimidazole derivative (oxo(4-((phenylcarbamothioyl) carbamoyl)phenyl) ammonio) oxonium (4NBP) and thiourea derivative 2-((4-bromobenzyl)thio) -1H-benzo[d] imidazole (2SB) were used as corrosion inhibitors and an essential quantum chemical parameters correlated with inhibition efficiency, EHOMO (highest occupied molecular orbital energy) and ELUMO (lowest molecular orbital energy). Other parameters are also studied like energy gap [ΔE (HOMO-LUMO)], electron affinity (EA), hardness (Δ), dipole moment (μ), softness (S), ionization potential (IE), absolute electron negativity (χ), and global electrophilicity index (ω) respectively. Mulliken population was also essential to determine a local reactivity by indicating reactive centers and identifyinga potential nucleophilic and electrophilic attacks sites. The adsorption of compounds is also discussedwith the bonds length, the angles, and tetrahedral of molecules. The 2SB best from 4NBP as corrosion inhibitors according to theoretical and experimental proving.Predicated.
