Abstract This paper deals with the biocidal and inhibitive effects of aqueous extract of Azardiracta indica (neem) on mild steel in fresh water environment. The extract retards the corrosive effect to an extent, which mainly depends on the concentration and stability of the extract. The biocidal and inhibitive properties are investigated by pour plate technique and by weight loss measurements, potentiodynamic polarization and AC impedance measurements. The inhibition activity is due to the adsorption of natural compounds, which are found in A.indica extract
