Aerobic Reduction of Uranium(VI) by Acidithiobacillus Thiooxidans Cultures
Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans was grown in the presence of uranium and its redox processes were studied in aerobic conditions for the first time. Results so far obtained may suggest an indirect uranium reduction, mediated by metabolically produced reducing compounds.
