International legislation body has drawn scan is plotted as potential versus logarithm - offshore chemical into several categories of the current. based on biodegradation, bioaccumulation and toxicity. Otherwise, the inhibitors are not accepted to be used as they are harmful to environment. Therefore, most industries are looking for green inhibitor. Electrochemical test has been carried out for Tafel polarization to determine the corrosion rate of carbon steel. This research aimed to investigate the potential corrosion of carbon steel in seven different immersion, ,periods (1, 2, 7, 14, 21, 28 and 35 days) in seawater (3.5 % NaC1). The effect of temperature was using 25% inhibitor added with seawater in temperature 5"C, 10°C, 20°C and 30°C. Corrosion rate decreases as the immersion time increased and corrosion rate increased as temperature increase as expected.
