Biosorption of aluminum, cobalt, and copper ions by Providencia rettgeri isolated from wastewater
Twenty three bacterial isolates from polluted water and soil were screened for heavy metals resistance (i.e. Al(3+) , Co(2+) and Cu(2+) ). The most potent isolate was identified by morphological characteristics, biochemical tests and confirmed by API20E kits as Providencia rettgeri MAM-4. Removal of Al(3+) from aqueous solution by P. rettgeri is more efficient (∼4-fold) than that by B. cereus ... Read more
