Asbestos, mineral present in soil, are highly toxic due to the presence of iron. Microbes-mineral interactions occur naturally through various processes leading to their alteration. We examined the effect of siderophore-producing Pseudomonas with a particular focus on the role of pyoverdine and pyochelin on raw asbestos fibers such as amosite, crocidolite and chrysotile. We compared the efficiency of pyoverdine to the iron chelating agent EDTA in the release of iron from raw asbestos fibers… Expand
