1. A method comprising:
depositing a protective coating comprising an
N-(phosphonoalkyl)iminodiacetic acid or any salt thereof onto an acid-reactive surface comprising an acid-reactive substance selected from the group consisting of a metal, a metal salt, a mineral, a carbonate mineral, and an acid-degradable polymer; and
contacting a mineral acid or an organic acid with the protective coating without substantially reacting the acid-reactive surface where the protective coating is present for a time period when the pH of the mineral acid or organic acid in contact with the protective coating is about 3 or lower.
