Reduction of net mercury methylation by iron in Desulfobulbus propionicus (1pr3) cultures: implications for engineered wetlands.

Abstract

Although one potential drawback of wetland construction and restoration is the formation of monomethylmercury, it may be possible to decrease net mercury methylation with the use of an appropriate sediment amendment. Using pure cultures of the sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfobulbus propionicus (1pr3), we tested the hypothesis that adding ferrous iron to… (More)
