We have hypothesized that products of oxygen biotransformation by a microbial electron transport chain, for example, superoxide anion and the product of its disproportionation, hydrogen peroxide, play a key role in aerobic biocorrosion. The goal of the present work was to evaluate the role of superoxide anion and its derivatives in initiation of bacterial corrosion and its dependence on the composition of nutrient medium.
