The weight loss method discovered that the amount of corrosion that took place in mild steel (MS) at 303K could be decreased by submerging the material in a sodium chloride solution. The weight loss data were used to calculate the inhibitory effectiveness and the degradation rate. These calculations were carried out using the information. The strategy for avoiding corrosion works more effectively thanks to a higher inhibitor concentration, which may be found in an extract of the Abelmoschus esculentus plant. The pace of corrosion may be slowed down if the efficacy of the green inhibitor could be boosted. Because of the increasing concentration of the inhibitor solution, a protective layer will form on top of the MS. As a consequence of this, the reactive site on the MS will become inactive. Utilizing electrochemical methods, which would be of tremendous aid in this endeavour, may make it easier to develop a protective layer on the surface of the MS, which would be a significant step in the right direction. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy are two techniques that have been used to evaluate its surface, and both of these techniques have contributed to its solid reputation (FTIR). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to evaluate the surface smoothness and roughness of mild steel. The findings were compared to those obtained from a blank that included an inhibitor.
