Exopolysaccharides from Lactic acid Bacteria as Corrosion Inhibitors

  title={Exopolysaccharides from Lactic acid Bacteria as Corrosion Inhibitors},
  author={Ignatova-Ivanova Tsveteslava and Radoslav Ivanov},
Bacterial EPSs (exopolysaccharides) are believed to play an important role in the environment by promoting survival strategies such as bacterial attachment to surfaces and nutrient trapping, which facilitate processes of biofilm formation and development. These microbial biofilms have been implicated in corrosion of metals, bacterial attachment to prosthetic devices, fouling of heat exchange surfaces, toxicant immobilization, and fouling of ship hulls. In this paper, data on EPS production and… CONTINUE READING
