Cathodic depolarization of mild steel by Desulfovibrio desulfuricans was demonstrated with benzyl viologen used as an electron acceptor. Direct measurement of the cathodic depolarization current indicated a maximum current density of 1 microampere per square centimeter. Aluminum alloys were also cathodically depolarized by the organism.
