Electrochemical Corrosion Behavior of Cu-15Ni-8Sn Alloy in Marine Microbial Medium

Abstract:

Article Preview

A comparative study of the corrosion behavior of the copper-nickel-tin alloy in a nutrient–rich simulated seawater-based nutrient-rich medium in the presence and the absence of the marine bacteria was carried out by electrochemical experiments, microscopic methods. Comparing to the corresponding control samples, the electrochemical data demonstrated that the presence of the bacteria accelerated the corrosion of the alloy. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images revealed the occurrence of micro-pitting and intergranular corrosion underneath the biofilm on the alloy surface.
