Microbially Influenced Corrosion of Copper by Marine Bacterium Vibrio natriegens
The microbially influenced corrosion of copper by marine bacterium Vibrio natriegens (V. natriegens) was investigated using surface analysis (atomic force microscopy (AFM) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). AFM images corroborated the results from the EIS models which show biofilm attachment over time. The electrochemical results showed that the corrosion of copper was accelerated in the presence of V. natriegens based on the decrease in the resistance of the charge transfer resistance (Rct) obtained from EIS.
