Summary: (Hildenborough) can grow on acetate plus CO as carbon source with H as the sole source of energy. The capability of sulphate reducers to oxidize H has been proposed as a major factor in the anaerobic corrosion of metals. Utilization by of cathodic hydrogen from a mild steel electrode was demonstrated electrochemically and physiologically. depolarized the metal electrode and growth on acetate under N/CO was dependent on the presence of the electrode. Although the highest corrosion rate was observed under aerobic conditions, significantly increased the corrosion rate under anaerobic conditions.
