The inhibition property of Pisonia Alba Extract (PAE) on the corrosion of carbon steel in well water was investigated using weight loss technique. Weight loss study reveals that the formulation consisting of 300 ppm of Pisonia Alba (PSA) and 50ppm of Ni2+ offers 89% inhibition efficiency to carbon steel immersed in well water. FT-IR spectra confirms that protective film formed on the metal surface. The smoothness of the metal surface were examined by SEM analysis.
