Bacterial attachment and detachment in aluminum-coated quartz sand in response to ionic strength change.

Abstract

Column experiments were performed to investigate the effect of ionic strength on the attachment and detachment of Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 10537 and Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633 in aluminum-coated quartz sand. Results showed that the average mass recovery decreased from 80.7 to 45.3% in quartz sand and remained constant in aluminum-coated sand with… (More)
