Application of Magnetically Labeled Cells S. Cerevisiae as Biosorbents at Treatment Plants

This paper studies the sorption capacity of magnetically labeled biosorbents – yeast cells Saccharomyces cerevisiae – to remove iron ions (II). The study is conducted on model solutions and wastewater samples from Slavutych, Chernihiv region. We obtain magnetically treated biosorbents by modifying Saccharomyces cerevisiae baker yeast by magnetite nanoparticles. We perform modification by mechanical and multivertex magnetohydrodynamic mixing (MHDM) of yeasts’ suspensions with magnetite nanoparticles.
