Escherichia coli surface characteristics including hydrophobicity, electrophoretic mobility and surface functional groups' composition were investigated. These characteristics were determined respectively by water contact angle measurements, microelectrophoresis and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The relation between the physicochemical properties(More)
A simple and rapid method, Microbial adhesion to hexadecane, for estimating the cell surface charge is proposed. This method is based on the determination of cell affinity to hexadecane at low ionic strength and at high ionic strength. The difference between these two affinities can provide the relative cell surface charge. The application of this method(More)
