Abstract: This study on Eichhornia Crassipes focus on its advantageous contribution to oil sample protection through its anti-oxidant and anti-corrosion properties. It was discovered to possess antioxidant constituents of phospholipid with strong structure of amphipathic molecules with much of hydrophobic strength. Eichhornia Crassipes contain triglycerides known as lutein, lycopene, α-Tocopherol, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin which help in protecting lubricants against oxidation, corrosion, thermolysis and hydrolysis. These good potential helps in neutralizing acids also the chitins potential found at the root region of the plant, serves as destroyer for some dangerous contaminants in the lubricant. This function as a key quid in extending the life span of an oil lubricant degradation from occurring. However, the antioxidants still deplete in the process as a result of vigorous reactions to the formation of some acids in the system.
Keywords: Anti-oxidant, Degradation, Eichhornia Crassipes, lubricants, and Phospholipid.
