Reduction of Hexavalent Chromium by Viable Cells of Chromium Resistant Bacteria Isolated from Chromite Mining Environment
Effect of electron donor supplementation on Cr(VI) reduction by viable cells of Arthrobacter sp. SUK 1201. [Cr(VI)reduction was carried out in V. B. broth containing 100 μM Cr(VI). The initial cell density was maintained at 109 cells/mL. The electron donor was present at 0.1% w/v level, and 0.01% w/v glucose was present in control set. Incubation: 48 h at 25°C under continuous shaking (120 rpm). Residual Cr(VI) was measured by diphenylcarbazide method. Results represent mean of triplicate experiments ± standard error].
