Abstract The design of novel high-entropy alloys (HEAs) provides a unique opportunity for the development of structure-function integrated materials with high mechanical and antimicrobial properties. In this study, by employing the antibacterial effect of copper, a novel Al0.4CoCrCuFeNi HEA with broad-spectrum antibacterial and strong mechanical properties was designed. High concentrations of copper ions released from the HEA prevented the growth and biofilm formation by biocorrosive marine bacterial species. These findings serve as a proof-of-concept for the further development of unique HEA materials with the high antimicrobial efficiency and mechanical properties, compared to conventional antibacterial alloys.

Abstract Stainless steel (SS) has been widely applied as one of the most efficient implant metal materials, although corrosion and infection in body environment are still challenging. Herein, an antibacterial passivation method was employed to enhance the antibacterial performance and corrosion resistance of the medical 316L SS. The result proved that the antibacterial-passivated 316L SS exhibited stable antibacterial activity and effectively inhibited the formation of bacterial biofilm. Electro...

Abstract The adverse corrosion and corrosion inhibitory effects of the marine isolated bacterium Bacillus vietnamensis were determined on different alloys. The corrosion rates of the steel alloys increased in the presence of Bacillu vietnamensis ; although the alloys containing Cu were found to be protected from corrosion when exposed to this bacterium. The first assay bacterial mechanism confirmed the presence of protease enzyme, which was then identified by LC-MS/MS analysis. We proposed that ...

Abstract In nature, microbes tend to form synergistic biofilms on a wide range of materials using extracellular polymeric substances to embed sessile cells. Problematic biofilms provide environments conducive to the occurrence of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) in many industries. MIC includes corrosion caused by microbes as well as corrosion by another pre-existing corrosion agent that is accelerated by microbes. There are several distinct types of MIC mechanisms associated with di...

Abstract Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a major cause of corrosion damages, facility failures, and financial losses, making MIC an important research topic. Due to complex microbiological activities and a lack of deep understanding of the interactions between biofilms and metal surfaces, MIC occurrences and mechanisms are difficult to predict and interpret. Many theories and mechanisms have been proposed to explain MIC. In this review, the mechanisms of MIC are discussed using b...

Abstract In industrial and clinical settings, microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), also known as biocorrosion, is a major problem associated with materials degradation and infection. To mitigate biofilms, a Cu-bearing 2205 duplex stainless steel (2205-Cu DSS) was created by researchers to utilize the antimicrobial ability of copper. In this study, nitrate reducing Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm was grown as a nitrate reducing bacterium to investigate the antimicrobial efficacy and the M...

Abstract Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is the terminology applied where the actions of microorganisms influence the corrosion process. In literature, terms such as microbial corrosion, biocorrosion, microbially influenced/induced corrosion, and biodegradation are often applied. MIC research in the oil and gas industry has seen a revolution over the past decade, with the introduction of molecular microbiological methods: (MMM) as well as new industry standards and procedures of sam...

Abstract The impact of biofilm formation and bacterial solutions of Desulfovibrio vulgaris (a sulfate reducing bacteria, SRB) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PAO1, denitrifying bacteria) on the corrosion of cast iron was assessed and compared in this study. Corrosion experiments were separately conducted in respective culture media (in-situ) and in 3.5% NaCl (ex-situ, pH 4). The extent of cast iron corrosion diminishes in the co-presence of PAO1 and SRB compared to SRB alone. However, patchy and sca...

Abstract null null A quasi-equiatomic CoCrFeCuNi high-entropy alloy (HEA) with a broad-spectrum antibacterial ability and good mechanical properties has been fabricated by selective laser melting (SLM) and in-situ alloying of a blend of pre-alloyed CoCrFeNi powder and Cu elemental powder. The as-built HEA alloy has a homogeneous distribution of Cu and presents a single FCC phase. Compared with the same HEA fabricated using the traditional ingot metallurgy (IM) process, the HEA alloy fabricated b...

Abstract In the current work, a parallel comparison of the influence of Al, Mo and Ti, on the microstructure and strengthening of the CoCrFeNi alloy was conducted. To achieve this, inconsistencies on variables including the extent of alloying, thermomechanical processing and property-evaluation method were avoided. Microstructurally, following cold-rolling, annealing of the 4 at.% Al-doped alloys at 800-1000 掳C did not result in phase separation; nevertheless, that of the 4 at.% Mo- and Ti-doped...

Abstract Contact-killing antimicrobial coatings based on host defense peptides (HDPs) and their synthetic mimics have shown potential as powerful tools to combat implant-associated infections. Covalent modification of the antimicrobial surface has been utilized to prevent early-stage microbial infections owing to the less drug-leaching possibility that is beneficial to human health and the natural environment. Although considerable progress has been achieved in preparing contact-killing antimicr...

Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) is the most common cariogenic bacteria and causes caries by forming biofilms. A novel gradient Cu-bearing titanium alloy (TC4-5Cu/TC4) was manufactured using selective laser melting (SLM) technology for dental applications, which is anticipated to inhibit the formation of biofilm. In this study, the released concentration of copper ions in both minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) was tested in order to assess the an...

Abstract Nickel-aluminium bronze (NAB) alloys are traditional marine materials used for decades, but face to the challenge of insufficient strength and corrosion properties. In this work, thanks to the strong solid solution strengthening, corrosion and biofouling resistant ability of multiple components, we developed novel NiMnFeCrAlCu multi-principal-element alloys (MPEAs), which exhibit excellent combination of mechanical and corrosion resistant properties. It was found that NiMnFe0.5Cr0.5Al0....
