This work deals with the evaluation of diphenyl sulphide as a corrosion inhibitor for zinc in 0.5N HCl and 0.5N H2SO4 by conventional weight loss and gasometric methods. Results indicate that diphenyl sulphide exhibited high inhibition efficiencies in both the acids but performed better in 0.5N H2SO4 than in 05N HCl. The inhibition efficiency was found to increase with increase in the inhibitor concentration. The adsorption of the inhibitor molecules on the zinc metal surface obeyed Temkin adsorption isotherm.
