Hexavalent Chromium Reduction from Pollutant Samples by Achromobacter xylosoxidans SHB 204 and its Kinetics Study.

ABSTRACT: Cr(VI) is most toxic heavy metal and second most widespread hazardous metal compound worldwide. Present work focused on Cr(VI) reduction from synthetic solutions and polluted samples by Achromobacter xylosoxidans SHB 204. It could tolerate Cr(VI) up to 1600 ppm and reduce 500 ppm with 4.5 chromium reductase enzyme units (U) having protein size 30 kDa. Changes in morphology of cells on interaction with Cr(VI) metal ion was also studied using SEM-EDX and FTIR. Microcosm studies in pollutant samples for Cr(VI) reduction and adsorption isotherm with biomass of bacterium was best fitted with Langmuir model along with kinetic studies. This study focuses on significance of Cr reduction from synthetic solutions and polluted samples by A. xylosoxidans SHB 204 and its potential for bioremediation.
