Abstract

Corrosion of metal materials by microorganisms has long been known as microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). However, little is known about causal microorganisms and their corrosion mechanisms. Poor knowledge about iron-corrosive microorganisms is delaying the development of rapid and accurate diagnostic method against MIC. In this paper, I introduced general knowledge about microorganisms and reviewed about latest knowledge of iron-corrosive microorganisms and MIC investigation. Furthermore, I propose the ideal scheme and future insight of genetic analysis for MIC investigation.
