Corrosion is commonly known as rust, an undesirable phenomena which destroys the appearance and beauty of objects and cause shorter of life span [I]. The objective for this research is to study the effect of using green inhibitor with seawater (3.5% NaCl) to the corrosion resistance of stainless steel 304 (SS304). The green inhibitor was extracted from banana peel and the concentration varies from 5% to 25%. The test was conducted using the 3- electrode potentiostat at ambient temperature under static conditions. The results elucidate that green inhibitor has significant effect to the breakdown of passive film of SS304 in seawater. The forms of corrosion attack viewed reveal the effect of inhibitor to breakdown potential Eb of SS304.
