Heavy metal resistance by bacteria is a topic of much importance to the bioremediation of contaminated soils and sediments. We report here the isolation of a highly cadmium-resistant Klebsiella planticola strain, Cd-1, from reducing salt marsh sediments. The strain grows in up to 15 mM CdCl(2) under a wide range of NaCl concentrations and at acidic or(More)
Using EXAFS, we investigated the changes in the local structure of Cd(II) complexes formed with a series of low-molecular-weight thiols at different thiol/cadmium stoichiometries. For dilute solutions, a comparison of theoretical and experimental standards proved the latter approach superior. The number of bound oxygen atoms decreased while the number of(More)
