Corrosion is the reaction between the material and the environment that cause degradation of the material. Carbon steel is very susceptible to corrosion attack and the use of inhibitors is one of the best options to protect against corrosion on metals and alloys especially in a closed system. Inhibitor is a chemical substance into electrolyte. The organic inhibitor used ir which can reduce corrosion attack when addec into electrolyte. The organic inhibitor used ir this shtdy was from banana peel (scientific name Musa sapieutum) to extract tannin-a compounc which can provide protective layer on metal [I]. This research provide a set of data elucidated that corrosion product developed on carbon steel during immersion test cannot provide corrosion protection on carbon steel, however, using green inhibitor in high concentrations which is purely not harmful to environment could prevent corrosion attack on carbon steel.
