Selection of Suitable Fungus, Development of Arsenic Resistant Strain and Kinetic Analysis for as (Iii) Biosorption

Subhadeep Ganguly

Abstract :

An experimental study was carried out to select suitable suitable fungal biosorption of As (III) from ground water.For this purpose , sample of soil was collected from As (III) contaminated area at Jadavpur, Kolkata, West Bengal ,India and fungal strains were initially collected from this sample.. This strain was then subjected to subsequent trials to develop As (III) resistant strain. Aspergillus niger X300 was selected as the best strain which can grew even in a As (III) contaminated medium as 1500 mg/L. Its maintenance medium, Zeta potential at different pH , pI and pseudo–first order linear kinetics for As (III) biosorption was studied.
