This article shows how biological electrochemical reactions can be used to bioremediate hexavalent chromate, i.e., Cr6+ or Cr(VI), waste waters in the presence of other potentially toxic species used in chromate conversion coatings.
microbially induced corrosion
Sample sterilization is a crucial step in microbially induced corrosion (MIC) research that is usually overlooked. In this regard, metal sterilization procedures should not alter the surface nor affect the inherent susceptibility of the metal to corrosion while adequately deactivating biological activity. So, are all sterilization methods the same? Do they alter the corrosion response of the sample being investigated?
