Summary Clostridia are strict anaerobic, spore-forming, fermentative bacteria commonly present in soils, sediments, and wastes; and, they play a major role in the decomposition of a wide variety of organic compounds. They also are involved in the reduction of iron, manganese, and uranium, thereby affecting their solubility. However, little is known of the ability of Clostridia to reduce technetium (Tc). We investigated the reduction and precipitation of pertechnetate by Clostridium sphenoides… Expand
