The current research employs an encapsulation of dibutyl phthalate (DBP) as a corrosion inhibitor in situ polymerization using a sonochemical method to form nanocapsules. The prepared nanocapsules were characterization by using Malvern particle size, Fouri-er transforms infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Transmission electron microscope (TEM), and thermal and mechanical test to check particle size, morphology, and stability of nanocapsules. Later prepared DBP nanocapsules were incorporated in standard epoxy coating to check its corrosion inhibition resistance. The results show that nanocapsules are spherical, with an average particle size of 337 nm. Scratch nanocapsules epoxy coating shows improves coating resistance after 1 day immersion, the values shown for 10% nanocapsules-based coating 8.62 x 1010 while for scratch standard coating is 2.41 x103. Overall thermal and mechanical properties for nanocapsules show better resistance, and electrochemical characterization for scratch nanocapsules coating shows better results than scratch epoxy coating
