Microbially induced corrosion can be controlled through biocides that eliminate the deleterious microorganisms. However, the electrochemical properties of such biocides and their role on the corrosion process is not very well understood. The present investigation is focused on the evaluation of peroxide based biocides viz. sodium peroxide, sodium perborate, sodium dithionite and sodium chlorite for their efficiency from corrosion as well as biocidal point of view. The biocides investigated were found to alter the corrosion tendency of mild steel. Sodium peroxide was proved to be the ideal choice both as biocide and as corrosion inhibitor
