Shewanellaceae are among the most widely studied electroactive microorganisms. This study reports on Shewanella putrefaciens under anaerobic conditions during applied potential while monitored by spectroscopy. The attachment of the microbe Shewanella putrefaciens onto an indium tin oxide electrode was found to occur after 2 hr of +0.2 V applied potential. Microbial detachment occurred with a 5 mV/s scan rate cyclic voltammogram from +0.2 V to -0.5 V to +0.2 V. This was confirmed through use of a spectroelectrochemical apparatus utilizing a standard 3 electrode setup with evanescent wave spectroscopy.
