Abstract Superhydrophobic coatings are increasingly being evaluated as anticorrosion interventions in exceedingly hydrated environments. However, concerns about their long-term durability and amenability to large-area applications in marine environments are still hindering commercial-scale deployment. This study is focused on development of easy-to-apply superhydrophobic coatings, with multifunctional capabilities, in order to extend the integrity and durability of the coatings in harsh marine e...

Abstract Titanium alloys possess excellent corrosion resistance in marine environment, thus the possibility of its corrosion caused by marine microorganisms are fully neglected. In this work, microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of TC4 titanium alloy caused by marine Pseudomonas aeruginosa was investigated through electrochemical and surface characterizations during a 14-day immersion test. Results revealed that the unstable surface caused by P. aeruginosa resulted in exposure of Ti2O3 a...

Abstract Algae are reported to be corrosive, while little is known about the role of the algae associated bacteria in the corrosion process. In the present study, Halomonas titanicae (H. titanicae) was isolated from a culture of an alga strain, Spirulina platensis, and identified through 16S rRNA gene analysis. Corrosion behavior of 304 L stainless steel coupons in the presence and absence of H. titanicae was characterized by using electrochemical measurements and surface analysis. The results s...

Abstract In nature, microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is often caused by multi-species biofilms rather than single-species biofilms. In this work, the MIC of 316L stainless steel (SS) was investigated in the presence of individual and mixed consortium biofilms of Shewanella oneidensis and Bacillus licheniformis through electrochemical and surface characterizations. Results revealed that MIC of 316L SS was significantly accelerated by the biofilm consortium of S. oneidensis and B. lich...

Abstract Catechin hydrate (CH) was evaluated for its antimicrobial, antibiofilm and anticorrosion activities for 304L stainless steel against Pseudomonas aeruginosa by means of surface analysis, electrochemical measurements and quantum chemical calculations. Results showed that CH inhibited the P. aeruginosa biofilm formation and killed mature biofilms. Electrochemical data demonstrated that CH inhibited the corrosion induced by P. aeruginosa with an excellent inhibition efficiency of 99.8%. It ...

Abstract The mitigation of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of 304L stainless steel (SS) against Pseudomonas aeruginosa by a Salvia officinalis extract was investigated using electrochemical and surface analysis techniques. The extract was characterized by HPLC-Q-TOF-MS and its antibiofilm property was evaluated. The data revealed the presence of well-known antimicrobial and anticorrosion compounds in the extract. The S. officinalis extract was found effective in preventing biofilm f...

Abstract Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a big threat to the strength and safety of many metallic materials used in different environments throughout the world. The metabolites and bioactivity of the microorganisms cause severe deterioration on the metals. In this study, MIC of pure titanium (Ti) was studied in the presence of a highly corrosive aerobic marine bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The results obtained from electrochemical test showed that Ti was corrosion resistant i...
