Evaluation of two types of polyurethane for the immobilisation of Rhizopus oryzae for copper uptake.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that Rhizopus oryzae strain IM 057412 grown in reticulated polyurethane foam demonstrated the same heavy metal adsorption capacity as the free biomass. Immobilisation in other types of polymers was shown to reduce the biomass uptake capacity because of mass transfer limitations due to the restricted porosity of the immobilisation… (More)
