Immobilisation of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans: importance of jarosite precipitation
Abstract A direct relationship between jarosite precipitation and the number of attached cells were found in Thiobacillus ferrooxidans cultures in the presence of glass beads. Low cell immobilisationExpand

Reduction of chromium (VI) by the indirect action of Thiobacillus thioparus
The microbial reduction of chromium(VI) to chromium(III) has been one of the most widely studied forms of metal bioremediation. Recently, we have found that Thiobacillus ferrooxidans and ThiobacillusExpand
