Si adsorption onto Bacillus subtilis and Fe and Al oxide coated cells of B. subtilis was measured both as a function of pH and of bacterial concentration in suspension in order to gain insight into the mechanism of association between silica and silicate precipitates and bacterial cell walls. All experiments were conducted in undersaturated solutions with respect to silicate mineral phases in order to isolate the important adsorption reactions from precipitation kinetics effects of bacterial… CONTINUE READING
