The studies on corrosion inhibition performance for carbon steel are quite a lot now, while there are still few studies on corrosion inhibition performance of gemini surfactants for aviation used aluminium alloys; at the same time, the corrosion inhibition studies of multi-alkyl multiple quaternary-ammonium salts cationic gemini surfactants with imino groups as spacers are more focused on using straight chain imino groups as spacers, those using branched chain imino groups as spacers are rarely reported.
