A corrosion inhibitor is a material which prevents or delays oxidation and galvanic action on a connector surface, or the interface of different conductors. Also, a chemical compound added to a mixture to restrain its chemical reaction until a desired condition exists.
A compound that retards or stops a chemical chain reaction such as corrosion, oxidation, or polymerization. These are used quite often to make products with unstable characteristics become stable for use and transportation.
Is a substance which is added to petroleum products to prevent or minimise an undesirable change in the product or the condition of the equipment in which it is used. The changes which are often prevented are corrosion, oxidation, solidification or deposition (wax, hydrate, asphaltene).
a molecule that decreases or prevents a chemical reaction, also called negative catalysts; often used as medicines to decrease enzyme-mediated reactions; antioxidants are inhibitors, and a type of corrosion inhibitor is added to antifreeze in automobile motors.
A chemical agent which slows or reduces chemical action. Inhibitors are used principally in liquid coolants to reduce corrosion of metal parts of the system and in well drilling fluids to reduce corrosion of metals in piping of equipment used in well drilling operations.
Compounds or materials that have the effect of slowing down or stopping an undesired chemical change such as corrosion, oxidation or polymerisation. Addition of certain types of inhibitors change the interfacial tension of a petroleum product which may reduce the coalescing efficiency of some medium. Reduced interfacial tension between two liquids causes a tighter emulsion more difficult to break up by coalescing.
an additive used to retard undesirable chemical action in a product. It is added in small quantities to gasolines to prevent oxidation and gum formation, to lubricating oils to stop color change, and to corrosive environments to decrease corrosive action.
The process of stopping a chemical/enzymatic reaction using a variety of chemical and physical means. In drug discovery inhibition of a binding assay is a method to determine that the detected binding is specific to the target receptor. A known receptor-binding analog is added at increasing concentrations, if it is able to reduce the binding of the ligand then it is competing for the binding of the same site.
