This research aims to characterize and compare the protective behaviour of a bio-based treatment versus benzotriazole (BTA) for the preservation of copper-based artefacts affected by active corrosion induced by copper chlorides. For this, the treatments were applied on artificial copper hydroxychlorides produced on copper sample. Their inhibition performance was then investigated by Scanning Electron Microscopy, Infrared Spectroscopy and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy. Results showed few BTA-Cu complexes formed and poor protectiveness of the BTA treatments. In contrast, the bio-based treatment resulted in the conversion of almost all copper hydroxychlorides into copper oxalates, providing a more efficient corrosion inhibition.
