Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Copper and Its Alloys in Anaerobic Aqueous Environments: A Review
Regardless of the long record of research works based on microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), its principle and mechanism, which lead to accelerated corrosion, is yet to be fully understood.
Community succession in an anaerobic long-chain paraffin-degrading consortium and impact on chemical and electrical microbially influenced iron corrosion.
Hydrogenotrophic partner micoorganisms required for syntrophic paraffin metabolism can be readily substituted depending on the availability of an external electron acceptor and a single par Affin-degrading consortium harbored microbes capable of both chemical (CMIC) and electrical (EMIC) microbial influenced iron corrosion.
An integrated metagenomic and metabolite profiling study of hydrocarbon biodegradation and corrosion in navy ships
Naval vessels regularly mix fuel and seawater as ballast, a practice that might exacerbate fuel biodegradation and metal biocorrosion. To investigate, a metagenomic characterization and metabolite
Microbial corrosion of metals: The corrosion microbiome.
Surface Characterization and Corrosion Behavior of 90/10 Copper-Nickel Alloy in Marine Environment
Investigation of surface characterization and corrosion behavior of 90/10 copper-nickel alloy in seawater from Xiamen bay at 30 °C for 56 days indicated that the corrosion product layer was mainly a mixture of CuO, Cu2O, and Cu(OH)2, with a transition to CuCl, CuCl2, and Cl during the corrosion process.
A study of biofilm formation in marine bacteria isolated from ballast tank fluids
Seawater-compensated fuel ballast systems maintain ship stability as fuel is spent but can introduce microorganisms that form biofilms, biodegrade fuel components, or enhance corrosion; all of which
Biocorrosion inhibition of Cu70:Ni30 by Bacillus subtilis strain S1X and Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain ZK biofilms
The results showed the inhibition of corrosion for Cu–Ni in biotic conditions (with biofilms) as compared with abiotic conditions (without bio Films).
Multiscale characterization of seawater pipe erosion of B10 copper–nickel alloy welded joints
In seawater pipeline, the welding joint is a non-uniform structure composed of welding seam, base metal and heat affected zone. It has inhomogeneity in chemical composition, organizational structure,


Anaerobic Biodegradation of Alternative Fuels and Associated Biocorrosion of Carbon Steel in Marine Environments.
The anaerobic biodegradation of labile fuel components coupled with sulfate respiration greatly contributed to the biocorrosion of carbon steel.
Assessing the Biological Stability of a Terpene-Based Advanced Biofuel and Its Relationship to the Corrosion of Carbon Steel
Energy-dense terpene biofuels have recently been recognized as renewable alternatives for high-density petroleum-derived fuels. While the physicochemical properties of terpene dimer fuel (TDF) have
Impact of organosulfur content on diesel fuel stability and implications for carbon steel corrosion.
Findings suggest that the stability of diesel is independent of the fuel organosulfur compound status and reasons for the accelerated biocorrosion associated with the use of ULSD should be sought elsewhere.
Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Copper Alloys in Saline Waters Containing Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
Abstract : Sections of CDA 706 piping and Monel 400 tubing were severely pitted after exposure to marine and estuarine waters. Pits developed under surface deposits of mixed bacterial communities
Anaerobic Metabolism of Biodiesel and Its Impact on Metal Corrosion
Biodiesels have gained widespread acceptance because they are domestically produced carbon-neutral fuels that ultimately decrease greenhouse gas emissions and reduce dependence on fossil imports.
Sulphide production and corrosion in seawaters during exposure to FAME diesel
In the presence of FAME diesel, the highest corrosion rates measured by linear polarization occurred in the KW exposure correlating with significantly higher concentrations of sulphur and chlorine (presumed sulphide and chloride, respectively) in the corrosion products.
A Study to Determine the Mechanisms of Corrosion of Copper-Nickel Alloys in Sulfide-Polluted Seawater
Abstract : The main objective of this research was to determine the role of dissolved sulfide pollutants on the seawater corrosion of two copper nickel alloys--90:10 Cu:Ni (CA 706) and 70:30 Cu:Ni
