In the present investigation, the inhibitive effects have been evaluated of alcoholic extract of leaf, seed, fruit, bark and latex from Artocarpus heterophyllus plant.
The extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus was obtained by dried, then finally powdered and extracted with ethanol.
The surface morphology of mild steel specimens in 1 N sulfuric acid in the absence and presence of the extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus was studied using scanning electron microscope model number Hitachi SU 1500.
Generally, the adsorption of organic molecules on metallic surfaces involves oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur atoms and in case of plant extracts of Artocarpus heterophyllus hydroxyl group of steroids, flavonoids and ascorbic acid (Fig.
The OH-group present in the flavonoids which is present in latex of Artocarpus heterophyllus has a positive inductive effect, which increases the electron density at the nitrogen atom of protein.
This indicates that the latex of Artocarpus heterophyllus in 0.
