Biocorrosion detection by sulphur isotopic fractionation measurements


This innovative study presents a local diagnosis approach based on nanoSIMS technique to determine the biotic/abiotic origin of iron sulphides of (sub)micron size heterogeneously located in the corrosion product layers of iron. For iron coupons corroded in controlled conditions, negative δ34Ssulphides-sulphates were obtained in biotic conditions contrary to δ34Ssulphides-sulphates obtained in abiotic ones. These results underline that nanoSIMS is a reliable local technique to detect the formation origin of (sub)micron iron sulphides. This successful methodology was then applied to a complex system representative of an iron corroded in the conditions similar to those of radioactive wastes storage in geological medium.
