This study discusses the effects of temperature on corrosion inhibition for soft-cast steel by the pharmaceutically active drug olmesartan in 1 mol dm−3 HCl. The sufficient number of electron-rich elements and non-bonding π electrons in its structure favored a good capability for coating onto the electron-deficient steel surfaces. Theoretical and electrochemical measurements were carried out at the temperature region of 303 K to 333 K. Therefore, the experiment suggests that the inhibition efficiency of olmesartan increases with its increasing concentrations due to the adsorption. Additionally, even at a higher temperature of 333 K, the inhibitor molecules attain their stability towards corrosion resistance of steel surfaces. The adsorption of inhibitors on steel surfaces is spontaneously found to include the mixture of physisorption and chemisorption, and it obeys Temkin’s adsorption isotherm model. Theoretical and computational considerations were made using quantum chemical parameters and molecular dynamics simulations, which confirmed that the olmesartan has a suitable corrosion inhibitive capability intended for soft-cast steel in 1 mol dm−3 HCl. Additionally, scanning electron microscopic measurement was used to obtain a visual idea of the inhibitive action of the inhibitor attained by forming an adsorbed protective layer onto the steel surfaces. The minute concentration of olmesartan of about 10–50 ppm shows high inhibition efficiency of ~80%, even at elevated temperatures.
