Both bacterial growth and corrosion involve electrochemical (charge-transfer)
which have been conveniently compared on the potential-pH (Pourbaix)
diagram in this paper.
We have tabulated bacteria which mediate or facilitate various pairs
of these half-cell reactions
in otherwise kinetically unfavorable electrochemical cells. The tabulated
cover the range of microbial physiology from oxidizing (aerobic) to
reducing (anaerobic) conditions
and from acidic to neutral and alkaline pH on the Pourbaix diagram.
from Pourbaix plots of microbially affected half-cell reactions are
discussed in relation to general
microbial ecology and specifically to their influence on the corrosion
of iron and carbon steel
