Uranium adsorption mechanisms of live and heat-killed Saccharomyces cerevisiae in different pH values and biomass concentrations were studied under environmentally relevant conditions. Compared with live cells, the adsorption capacity of heat-killed cells is almost one order of magnitude higher in low biomass concentration and highly acidic pH conditions. To explore the mesoscopic surface interactions between uranium and cells, the characteristic of uranium deposition was investigated by SEM… CONTINUE READING
