Microorganisms as potential vectors of the migration of radionucleides

Abstract : The migration of heavy metals and radionuclides depends on many factors of which the microbiological life. In this paper, we describe in a first step, the microorganisms-metals interaction processes and secondly, our works on biosorption. The important factors affecting the biosorption are the cell wall structure and the growth conditions. Bacteria are shown to exhibit a fixation selectivity for some ions (Th4+). Finally we give some examples of the characterization of the binding sites.
