By Haluk Beyenal, Jerome T. Babauta

This publication serves as a guide of analysis concepts for electrochemically lively biofilm examine. utilizing examples from actual biofilm examine to demonstrate the innovations used for electrochemically lively biofilms, this publication is of so much use to researchers and educators learning microbial gas mobile and bioelectrochemical platforms. The ebook emphasizes the theoretical ideas of bioelectrochemistry, experimental approaches and instruments helpful in quantifying electron move techniques in biofilms, and mathematical modeling of electron move in biofilms. it's divided into 3 sections:

  • Biofilms: Microbiology and microbioelectrochemistry - specializes in the microbiologic element of electrochemically lively biofilms and info the foremost issues of biofilm guidance and electrochemical measurement
  • Electrochemical ideas to check electron move approaches - makes a speciality of electrochemical characterization and knowledge interpretation, highlighting key components within the experimental approaches that impact reproducibility
  • Applications - specializes in purposes of electrochemically lively biofilms and improvement of customized instruments to review electrochemically lively biofilms. Chapters aspect find out how to construct the reactors for functions and degree parameters

Frequently, the practical values of anodes in MFCs do not align with the polarization potentials used to cultivate EABs in the laboratory, yet many published research articles describe the usefulness of the data for advancing MFCs. For example, G. sulfurreducens biofilms are typically grown at 0 mVAg/AgCl or higher and have electrode potentials that cannot be observed in practical MFC applications. These EAB studies have significant relevance to studying electron transfer mechanisms, and we are not debating on this point.
