Bacterial activity at metal surfaces may result in corrosion induction or corrosion inhibition. An important effect of chemoorganotrophic bacteria under aerobic conditions is the removal of oxygen from the metal surface. This is most effectively done by biofilm-forming microorganisms and causes corrosion inhibition. Anaerobes promote corrosion if they consume molecular hydrogen, for example sulfate-reducing bacteria and certain Fe(III)-reducing organisms such as Shewanella putrefaciens… CONTINUE READING
