The effects of natural organic matter (NOM), ferrozine, and AQDS (anthraquinone-2,6-disulfonate) on the reduction of hematite (alpha-Fe2O3) by Shewanella putrefaciens CN32 were studied. It has been proposed that NOM enhances the reduction of Fe(III) by means of electron shuttling or by Fe(II) complexation. Previously both mechanisms were studied separately using "functional analogues" (AQDS for electron shuttling and ferrozine for complexation) and are presently compared with seven different… CONTINUE READING
