The role of tungsten on the phase transformation kinetics and its correlation with the localized corrosion resistance of 25Cr super duplex stainless steels

This investigation demonstrated that tungsten drastically slowed the precipitation of deleterious tertiary phases down in 25Cr super duplex stainless steels, resulting in an improved overall pitting corrosion resistance.

Nutrient level determines biofilm characteristics and the subsequent impact on microbial corrosion and biocide effectiveness

This investigation demonstrated that the continuous flow of nutrients for the microbial growth resulted in higher activity, thickness and robustness of the biofilms formed on carbon steel, which induced greater localised corrosion compared to biofilms formed under batch, nutrient-depleted conditions.

Complementary DNA/RNA-Based Profiling: Characterization of Corrosive Microbial Communities and Their Functional Profiles in an Oil Production Facility

In this investigation, it was showed that DNA-based sequencing results alone could lead to underestimation of active members in the community resulting in an inaccurate MIC risk assessment.
