Biomolecules and Corrosion book pdf download Microbial-influenced corrosion (MIC) and biological corrosion is important for maritime, chemical engineering, and bioprocess engineering industries. Presently no environmentally friendly technology has been available to minimize the economic loss of biocorrosion. Currently available anti-biocorrosion technology depends heavily on chemical methods to regulate biofilm formation which has a negative impact on the environment.
This book targets the roles of EPS, proteins, lipids, DNA, and different metabolites currently known to be involved in the corrosion processes. The potential roles of EPS, proteins, lipids and enzymes are still poorly understood. There are still collective issues that need to be addressed, including the importance of the microbial role in MIC.
