16 Claims. (c1. 252--8.55)
This invention relates to the inhibition of corrosion of metals, and particularly to a composition for use in preventing corrosion of metals and particularly iron, steel, and ferrous alloys. The corrosion inhibitors contemplated herein find special utility in the prevention of corrosion of pipe or equipment which is in contact with a corrosive oil-containing medium, as, for example, in oil wells producing corrosive oil or oil-brine mixtures, in refineries, and the like. Our inhibitors may, however, be used in other systems They appear to possess properties which impart to metals resistance to attack by a, variety of corrosive agents, such as brines, weak inorganic acids, organic acids, CO2, HzS, etc.
Compounds which we have found to be effective for the purpose described above belong to the generalclass of cyclic amidines, and in particular are substituted imidazolines, in which the imidazoline molecule contains at least one aliphatic, or cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon group containing from 8 to 32 carbon atoms. Cyclic imidazolines in which the 2-carbon atom is substituted by a long chain aliphatic hydrocarbon group are particularly easy to prepare and are very eiiective for the present use. However, it has in which either R or X, or both, contain or consist of an aliphatic or. cycloaliphatic radical containing from 8 to 32'carbon atoms.
In the most general classification of reagents suitable for our process, the symbol X may include another imidazoli'ne ring, as described more fully below. Shown in the most general way, the compounds contemplated for use herein may be represented by the following formula:
where at least one of the groups R and R is an aliphatic or cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon group containing from 8 to 32 carbon atoms and otherwise may be hydrogen or a, hydrocarbon radical; and D is a divalent organic radical. In the more common reagents, D will be a relatively small organic radical, such as in the following examples of the grouping DR':
C,.Il;..-NR'C.H1.NR'- -C Hm-NlV-C n h NR n Zn N -o,.H,,.N N-D- HgHg Where n is the numeral 1 to 6 and R is hydrogen or an aliphatic or cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon radical.
In the simplest case, the group R may be directly attached to the l-nitrogen atom of the ring, as follows:
We have found that particularly outstanding corrosion-preventive reagents result when the imidazoline compound contains basic nitrogen groups inaddition to those inherently present in the imidazoline-ring. In general, compounds of 0 this type which are effective are those in which the basic nitrogen group is contained in the radicalD in the above formula.
In this case the products may be represented by the-formula:
Of this class of reagents inwhich an amino groupoccurs asa portionoi the l-nitrogen subevolved and the desired imidazoline is formed inalmost quantitative yield. Such suitable reagents may be representedby the following formula:
wherexmay be ethylene amino radicals, hydroxyethylamino radicals, aminoalkyl radicals, alkyleneoxyalkyl radicals, hydrogen hydrocarbon radicals, cyclo'aliphatlc' or aliphatic hydrocarbon radicals or another imidazoline group: and where A is an aliphatic or cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon radical having from 8 to 32 carbon atoms; In the above formulas for imidazolines it should be pointed out that where X is a hydrogen atom, the
nitrogen atoms become equivalent, insofar as re- 2o where R and R have their previous signific'ancestituent, those which are derived, at least theo I retically, from the polyethylene polyamines appear tobe particularly. effective as corrosion inhibitors and are so outstandingas to constitute an invention within an invention. These have the general formula:
where R and R have their previous meanings, and m'is a small number, usually less than 6.
Q The preparation of an imidazoline substituted in the 2-position by aliphatic hydrocarbon radicals is well described in the literature and is readily carried out by reaction between a mono-carboxylic acid and a diamine, or polyamine, containing at least one primary amino group, and at least one secondary amino group, or another primary amino group separated from the first primary amino group by two carbon atoms. Examples of suitable polyamines which can be employed for this conventional imidazoline synthesis include ethylenediamine, diethylenetriamine, triethylenetetramine, ,tetraethylenepentamine, 1,2-diaminopropane, N-ethylethylenediamine, N,N-dibutyldiethylenetriamine, 1,2-diaminobutane, hydroxyethylethylenedlamine, dipropylenediamine and the like. For details of the preparation of these reagents see the following U. S. patents: U. S. No. 1,999,989, dated Apr. 30, 1935, Max Bockmuhl at 8.1.; U. S. No. 2,155,877, dated Apr. 25, 1939, Edmund Waldmann et al.; and U. S. No. 2,155,878, dated Apr. 25, 1939, Edmund Waldmann et al. Also see Chem. Rev., 32, 47 (43).
When an aliphatic or cycloaliphatic carboxylic' acid containing 9 or more carbon atoms is employed in the above described synthesis, the resulting imidazoline will contain a Z-substituent consisting of an aliphatic hydrocarbon radical containing 8 or more carbon atoms. Suitable corrosion-preventive reagents may, therefore, be made directly by reaction of acids such as oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, erucic acid, talloil fatty acids, naphthenic acids, nonoic acid, and the like, with suitable amines such as those enumerated above. when this condensation is carried out at a temperature of 250? 0. or higher,
action is concerned, and cannot be distinguished from one another. reti'cal grounds, to-resultzfrom. the mobility of the hydrogen proton, and its ease of transfer from one nitrogen atom to the other. However, where X is anorganic substituentother than hydrogen,
the nitrogen atoms are no longer equivalent; For I the purpose of the present application, the nitro- I 'ge'n'atom to which the: radical X is attached will be called the l-nitrogen atom of the imidazoline I ring. This. is in conformance with the usual chemical convention in numbering heterocyclic ring positions.
As mentioned above, we have discovered that equally suitable corrosion-preventive reagents may be obtained byintroducing into the imidazoline compound an aliphatic hydrocarbon group of proper size as a portion of the substituent attached to the l-nitrogen atom of the imidazoline ring. Where the aliphatic hydrocarbon group occurs in this position, it is unnecessary that the z-carbon atom substituent contains 8 or more carbon atoms. It may be, in fact, only a hydrogen atom or a methyl group, ethyl group,
phenyl group, or other relatively small hydrocarbon group, although it is not restricted to such small groups. The preparation of imidazoline' compounds in which the higher molecular weight hydrocarbon radical occurs as a portion of the nitrogen atom substituent, are also readily prepared by methods analogous to those already described. In this case, however, a number of alternative procedures are possible. For example, one may prepare 2-methy1, l-(octadecylaminoethyl-) imidazoline by reaction of octadecyl aminoethylethylenediamine with acetic acid at a temperature of 250 to 300 C. until two moles of water are evolved for every mole of acetic acid employed. The same reagent may result by the preparation of 2-methy1, l-aminoethyl imidazoline followed by alkylation with octadecyl bromide and separation of resulting alkylation products to isolate the desired product. For the preparation of 1,2-substituted imidazolines, see King & McMillan, J. A. C. S. 68, 1774 (1946); Kyrides et al., J. Organic Chem. 12, 577 (1947).
Examples of suitable substituted imidazolines in which the aliphatic or cycloaliphatic group containing from 8 to 32 carbon atoms is a 2- position substituent, are as follows:

The corrosion preventive products of the present invention, since they contain an imida- 3 Y obtain equally suitable derivatives of imidazolines which may be employed in the present process.
For details of preparation or various imidazolinium salts, such as those mentioned above, see, for example, Shepard and Shonle, J. A. C. S. 69, 2269 (1947).
Although we have described the corrosion inhibitors of our process as imidazolinea'we may, in many instances, employ these compounds in the form of their salts, either with organic or inorganic acids. Being relatively strong bases. the imidazolines readily form such salts, and where the reagent contains basic groups in addition to the imidazoline ring nitrogen atoms, they may form dior polysalts. Examples of acids which may be used to form such salts are hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, acetic acid, oxalic acid, maleic acid, oleic acid, abietic acid, phosphoric acid, petroleum sulphonic acid, naphthenic acid, ricligsin, phenylacetic acid, benzoic acid, and the l e.
Salts of the imidazolines, such as those above described, appear to be equally as effective as zoline ring, may, in general, be alkylated to form either a l-alkyl-substituted imidazoline, or a quaternary ammonium salt, where the alkyl group is attached to either or both the 1 and 3 I nitrogen atoms. For example, using cetyl bro mide as a typical alkylating agent, the following reactions may be carried out:
( 'CieHnBr 11.0
' above, one may use other alkylating' agents such as methyl bromide, benzyl chloride, ethyl suliate, dichloroethyl ether, chloroparafiln, etc., to
them above as single ring compounds, it should be pointed out that in some instances reagent compounds containing two or more heterocyclic rings, such as two imidazoline rings may be employed. For example, if one reacts one mole of triethylene tetramine with-a mole of stearic acid to form a substituted heptadecylimidazoline, and then reacts this further with another mole of a carboxylic acid at a suitable high temperature, a diimidazoline is obtained.

Many obvious simple derivatives of the herein described corrosion inhibitors may be prepared which are also efiective. For example, we have deflned the groups R and R in the structural formulae aboveas being members of the class consisting of hydrogen, aliphatic. and cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon groups. Actually, the use of halogenated hydrocarbon groups appears to yield equally effective reagents, and chlorohydrocarbon groups, particularly, are readily introduced during synthesis. Since the chlorine atoms in these groups are relatively non-reactive and yield 1 I For injection into the well annulus, the corrosion inhibitor is usually employed as a solution in a suitable solvent, such as mineral oil, methylethyl ketone, xylene, kerosene, or even water. The selection of solvent will depend much upon the exact reagent being used and its solubility characteristics. It is also generally desirable to employ a solvent which will yield a solution of low products with solubilities similar to the hydrocarv bon derivativeythey do not diiier greatly in behavior from the corresponding hydrocarbon derivative. 4 a
Imidazolines containing a relatively high molecular weight hydrocarbon radical, and substituted in the 4- and/or 5- ring positions are also effective inhibitors, but are'not so readily prepared from presently available commercial reagents. 1
The method of carrying out our process is relatively simple in principle. The corrosion preventive reagent is dissolved in the liquid corrosive medium in small amounts and is thus kept in contact with the metal surface to be protected. Alternatively, the corrosion inhibitor may be applied first to the metal surface, either as is, or as a solution in some carrier liquid or paste. Continuous application, as in the corrosive solution, is the preferred method, however.
The present process finds particular utility in the protection of metal equipment of oil and gas day. -The brine contained 2.75% chlorides as wells, especially those containing or producing.
an acidic constituent such as H25, CO2, organic acids and the like. For the protection of such wells, the reagent, either undiluted or-dissolved in a suitable solvent, is fed down the annulus of the well. between the casing and producing tubular where it becomes commingled with the fluid in the well and is pumped or flowed. from the well with these fluids, thus contacting the inner wall of the casing, the outer and inner wall of tubing, and the innersurface of all wellhead fittings, connections and flow lines handling the corrosive Where the inhibitor composition is a liquid, it is conventionally fed into the well annulus by means of a motor driven chemical injector pump, or it may be dumped periodically (e. 8-, once every day or two) into the annulus by means of a socalled "boll weevil device or similar arrangement. Where the inhibitor is asolid, it may be dropped into the well as a solid lump or stick, it may be blown in as a powder with gas, or it may be washed in with a'small stream of the well fluids or other liquid. 7 Where there is gas pressure on the casing, it is necessary, of course, to employ any of these treating methods through a pressure equalizing chamber equipped to allow introduction 01 reagent into the chamber, equalization of pressure between chamber and easing,
1 and travel of reagent from chamber to well caspump. This results, for example, when the tub- I ing is surrounded at some point by a packing held by the casing or earth formation below-the casing. In such wells the reagent may be introduced into the tubing through a pressure equalizing vessel, after stopping the flow of fluids. After being so treated, the well should be left closed in for a period of time suflicient to permit the re-' agent to drop to the bottom of the well.
densate wells, the amount of corrosion inhibitor freezing point, so as to obviate the necessity of heating the solution and injection equipment during winter use.
For treating wells with packed-off tubing, the use of solid sticks" or plugs of inhibitor is especially convenient. These may be prepared by blending the inhibitor with a mineral wax, asphalt or resin in a proportion sufiicient to give a moderately hard and high-melting solid which can be handled and fed into the well conveniently.
The amount of corrosion preventive agent required in our process varies with the corrosiveness of the-system, but where a continuous or semi-continuous treating procedure is carried out as described above, the addition of reagent in the proportion of from one part per 1,000 to one part per 20,000 or more parts of corrosive fluid will generally provide protection. As an example of treating procedure and results, the following actual well-treatment history is presented.
Treatment was made of a West Texas oil well producing 15 bbls. of oil and 1 bbl. of brine per NaCl, and 275 parts per million of hydrogen sulfide. A solution 'of 2-heptadecylimidazoline in aromatic "naphtha was pumped continuously down the annulus of the well at such a rate that one part of imidazoline was introduced per 8,000
'parts-of oil produced. While thus treating the well, weighed steel test plates were kept exposed to the well fluids in the tubing and were-periodically (every two weeks) removed, cleaned and reweighed to determine the corrosion rate. The initial corrosion rate in this well before treatment began was 0.016 inch per year. While treated as described above. the corrosion rate was found to be 0.0005 inch per year. The rate of imidazoline injection was then reduced to one part per 20,000 parts of oil, and the corrosion rate was found to be 0.0009 inch per year. The ratio of inhibitor was then increased to one partin 40,000 parts of oil'and the corrosion rate rose to 0.003 inch per year. Finally, chemical injection was stopped. It was found that after 30 days the tha.- The amount of solution used was such as'to provide an average concentration of one part of l-dodecyl,2-methylimidazoline per 6,000 parts of oil produced. 'The corrosion rate of steel coupons exposed in the well head was reducedfrom a blank value of 0.015 inch per year to 0.0015 inch per year.
The protective action of the herein described reagents appears to be maintained for an appreciable time after treatment ceases, but eventually islost unless another application is -made.
For the protection of gas wells and gas-conrequired will usually be within range of one-half to 3 lbs. per million cubic feet of gas produced, depending upon the amounts and composition of corrosive agents in the gas and the amount of liquid hydrocarbon and water produced. However, in no case does the amount of inhibitor required appear to be stoichiometrically related to the amount of acids produced by a well, since protection is obtained with much less imidazoline than usually would be required for neutralization of the acids produced.
Recapitulating, we have found that the corrosion of metals, and particularly ferrous metals, may be inhibited by the application thereto of a substituted imidazoline in which a substituent at either or both the 1- or 2-position of the ring contains an aliphatic or cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon group having from 8 to 32 carbon atoms. Of this broad genus of corrosion inhibitors, there are several sub-classes which may be employed efiectlvely in our process. Such sub-classes are, (1)
those in which the 1-position substituent contains amino group, (2) those in which the l-position substituent is free or amino groups, (3) those in which the 4- and/or 5-position ring carbons are substituted, etc. The process of inhibiting corrosion employing the first of these sub-classes forms the subject-matter of our co-pending application for patent, Serial No. 1,657, filed January 10, 1948.
