[Balance of macroergic compounds during the growth of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans].

The balance of energy-rich compounds (ERC) was drawn up for the growth of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans in a medium with ferrous ions as an energy source. The balance items and the phosphorylating efficiency of oxidation (P/2e-) were calculated basing on the experimental yield values using the ERC balance equation. At a specific growth rate of 0.1 h-1, 55% of… CONTINUE READING
