|Abstract||Implication of manganese-oxidizers in corrosion of various alloys stimulated the investigators to concentrate on these aspects. In the present study, an attempt was made to bring out the bacterial genera involved in the oxidation of manganese in biofilms. The materials immersed in sea water for biofilm formation included polyvinyl chloride (PVC), stainless steel (SS), brass and copper. The biofilm samples were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively for both heterotrophic bacterial population (HB) and manganese-oxidizing heterotrophic bacterial population (MHB). Both qualitative and quantitative examination of biofilms showed relatively poor population density on copper. Qualitative examination revealed the representation of both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria on all materials. However, only Gram-positive groups, especially of the endospore-forming genus Bacillus and non-endospore forming genus Propionibacterium were observed on copper coupons. Gram-positive genera dominated over Gram-negative genera in most of the biofilms studied. The genera identified under manganese-oxidizing bacterial isolates were Bacillus, Staphylococcus, Synecoccus, Propionibacterium, Micrococcus, Pseudomonas and Vibrio. Among them, Bacillus species was most commonly encountered in all the materials studied. Potential measurements for SS316 showed positive shift. Analysis revealed enormous amount of manganese in the biofilms.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
