  4. Abstract:
  5. Copper corrosion in sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) solutions and carbon nanotube (CNT) nanofluids were studied by potentiodynamic polarization. For the corrosion current densities calculations, Koutecky-Levich equation was modified to model the combined charge and mass transport. 0.005. M SDS reduced the copper corrosion current density by 81%. Higher SDS concentrations enhanced corrosion. Stirring SDS solutions increased the corrosion current density by ∼75%. By adding CNT to SDS solution, the corrosion current density first decreased and then remained constant. Stirring CNT nanofluids didn't change the corrosion current density. An adsorbed CNT layer on copper controlled the corrosion process in CNT nanofluids
