The biotic and abiotic factors that contribute to Microbiologically Influenced
Corrosion (MIC) involve the transformation of chemical species at a metal surface.
X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) is utilized in conjunction with conventional
microbiological and Quantitative Chemical Analytical techniques to better under-
stand the effect of environmental conditions on microbial behavior as well as the
ability of bacteria to alter local environmental conditions. Specifically, the interac-
tion of Fe Cr, Ni, Mo ions with Desulfovibrio sp. under anoxic conditions were
studied. This is the first phase of a systematic study of microbial activity and the ef-
fects of alloy elements and thermo-mechanical treatments on the MIC resistance of

Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) are found extensively in natural and industrial
waters and have been frequently implicated as a cause of accelerated corrosion of cer-
tain metals. The extent to which the metabolic products of bacteria are involved
