Abstract

The formation of vivianite during the growth of Shewanella putrefaciens was determined in a culture medium containing soluble iron III citrate (90 mM) as electron acceptor, lactate (25 mM) as electron donor and 9 mM phosphate. The phenomenon started slowly in contrast to abiotic assays where precipitation occurred immediately. The presence of biomass delayed the formation of vivianite and probably the availability of iron II.
