    Potential oxidants for chromium are considered to be various disinfectants used for potable water treatment such as free chlorine, chloramines and hydrogen peroxide (Brandhuber et al., 2004). Nevertheless, oxidation of Cr(III) to Cr(VI) in the natural environment is not likely to occur by naturally occurring oxidants (Brandhuber et al., 2004), nor by any species of known bacteria (Schmieman et al., 1998). Given the relatively high redox potential of the Cr(VI)/ Cr(III) couple, only a few naturally

    that make them desirable for severe applications also make them difficult to manufacture [ , ]. High-carbon, high-chromium (AISI D series) cold-work tool steels are of the main groups of tool steels which are identified with their high wear resistance and exceptional nondeforming properties. The excellent wear resistance of D-type cold-work tool steels is the result of their high chromium (~12wt.%) and high carbon (1.5 to 2.35wt.%) contents. Generally, the high-carbon, high-alloy tool steels are
