Abstract

Corrosion resulting from the presence and activities of microbes on metals and metal alloys is generally referred to as microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). This article describes the biofilm formation and structure and microbial processes influencing corrosion. It also discusses the electrochemical techniques used to study and monitor MIC and presents examples of their applications to MIC.
