CORROSION AND REDUCTION OF IRON BY A SOLUBLE DEHYDROGENASE PRODUCED BY DESULFOVIBRIO DESULFURICANS
FORT DETRICK FREDERICK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
Desulfovibrio desulfuricans liberates a soluble hydrogenase that is capable of reducing Fe to elemental iron in a hydrogen atmosphere. The classical cathodic depolarization theory of bacterial corrosion is modified to account for this finding. The corrosion rate by this mechanism appears to be very small.
