Production of chelating compounds by yeasts in a microbial copper leaching system and its practical implications
A yeastRhodotorula glutinis repeatedly isolated from microbial copper leaching system increased the iron oxidation rate and the copper extraction efficiency of the process. It is proved that yeast could produce hydroxamate type chelating compounds, the practical implications of which are discussed.
