Development of a highly magnetic iron sulphide for metal uptake and magnetic separation

Microbial iron sulphide (FeS) is a well-known absorbent for heavy metals which has the potential to be used in biomagnetic separation. This paper illustrates that highly magnetic Fes can be produced from bioreactors which are continually switched between batch and continuous culture modes. Cadmium metal uptake studies highlight the sulphide absorbent properties of the Fes produced.
