The inhibiting effect of three compounds of pyrazolo[3,4-d] pyrimidnone derivatives toward the corrosion of carbon steel in 1.0M HCl solution was investigated using galvanostatic and potentiodynamic anodic polarization techniques. The rise of the concentration of the inhibitors and decreasing the temperature led to the greater of inhibition efficiency. The inhibiting action of these compounds was explicated on the footing of its adsorption on the carbon steel surface. The adsorption operation of these compounds was obeyed Langmuir isotherm. There is only one anodic peak during the anodic cyclic voltammogram This peak was elucidated due to the active dissolution of Fe as Fe2+. The percentage inhibition efficiency was computed from the values of peak current density.There is a good convention between the values of the percentage inhibition efficiency gained from the diverse techniques.These compounds inhibit the pitting corrosion of carbon steel by shifiting the pitting corrosion potential to more noble direction. The effect of elevation of temperature on the rate of corrosion in devoid of and containing these compounds was studied and some activated thermodynamic parameters were computed.
