Non-electrochemical measurement techniques are often used to study corrosion rate of metals. Weight loss measurement is the most common technique used to study metal corrosion. In this study the corrosion experiments are done by electro-chemical immersion technique using tar sand. Tar is a naturally available hydrocarbon can be referred as black mass of solid aggregate, composed primarily of mineral water, connate water and oil bitumen. The oil bitumen with heavy oil contains various fraction of multi-polymers, the chemical properties can be changed with respect to change in molecular weight. The spectroscopy study of tar used in this study is carried out by energy dispersive X-ray analysis and the surface study is carried out by SEM used to reveal the formation of corrosion.
