The influence of carbon dioxide concentration in liquid medium on elemental sulphur oxidation by Thiobacillus thiooxidans
Małgorzata Maria Jaworska , Andrzej Urbanek
AbstractThe influence of carbon dioxide concentration in liquid medium on elemental sulphur oxidation by Thiobacillus thiooxidans bacteria presented in this paper can be divided into 3 differing relationships. First relationship shows increase of sulphur biooxidation rate with increase of carbon dioxide concentration in liquid medium. Second one shows decrease of S0 oxidation rate with increase of CO2 concentration in nutrient and in the third relationship there is no influence of carbon dioxide concentration on sulphur oxidation by Thiobacillus thiooxidans bacteria. The influence of carbon dioxide concentration in liquid nutrient on alive bacteria concentration in liquid medium is similar to those described above.
