A comparative study on the filtration of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus cereus spores in a pyroclastic topsoil was performed in laboratory using surfactant-free solutions and solutions with the surfactant sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) (anionic). The results of the column experiments demonstrate that the SDS does not significantly influence the retention of both B. subtilis and B. cereus spores. Since the SDS is adsorbed through hydrophobic interaction with the organic matter of soil media… CONTINUE READING
