In nature, sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are one of the predominant and most troublesome bacteria associated with microbiologically influenced corrosion. In this work, a specially-designed Fe-based amorphous coating was used to resist SRB corrosion. Results indicated that the designed coating showed superior resistance to SRB corrosion, and the icorr of the coating was about 1/12 and 1/15 of that of 304SS and X80 steel, respectively. Furthermore, the live/dead cell imaging validated good antibacterial efficacy of the Fe-based amorphous coating. Both the obstructed electron transfer and the antibacterial effect were responsible for the superior resistance to SRB corrosion of the coating.
