Dissolution of sulphur particles by Thiobacillus ...

The growth of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans on sulphur is known to proceed through the attachment of cells to the sulphur particles. Experiments, However, show that the cells in the liquid phase, which are not attached to the sulphur particles, also grow. It has been shown through the use of a two‐compartment membrane reactor that this increase is partially due to the release of ions ...

Leaching of Zinc Sulfide by Thiobacillus ferrooxidans ...

The role of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans in bacterial leaching of mineral sulfides is controversial. Much of the controversy is due to the fact that the solution conditions, especially the concentrations of ferric and ferrous ions, change during experiments. The role of the bacteria would be more easily discernible if the concentrations of ferric and ferrous ions were maintained at set values ...
