Description: 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 understand the effect of environmental conditions on microbial behavior as well as the ability of bacteria to alter local environmental conditions. Specifically, the interaction 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 effects of alloy elements and thermo-mechanical treatments on the MIC resistance of stainless steels.
