values ranges from 1.0-20 mg/mL. As compare to the chemical surfactant surface tension reduction and cmc values it has been very close to the surface tension reduce by the SDS (Sodium dodecyl sulfate) i.e. 37.0 mN/m and 1.8 mg/L respectively. Biosurfactant produced by the Lactobacillus spp. CV8LAC which inhibits the biofilm formation by human pathogen was found to be 106 µg/mL with a reduction in surface tension from 70.92 to 45.4 mN/m (Fracchia et al.,
2.1.5. Role of Siderophore in metal remediation: Siderophores are low-molecular mass (400–1,000 Daltons) compounds with high association constants for complexing iron, but they can also form stable complexes with other metals, such as Al, Cd, Cu, Ga, In, Pb and Zn (Glick and Bashan, 1997; Schalk et al., 2011). Although siderophores contain other functional groups, they are broadly classified into three main groups based on the chemical nature of the moieties donating the oxygen ligands for Fe(III)
emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, oil recovery, drugs etc. Biodegradability and toxicity is a major issue arising from the widespread use of conventional surfactants that led researchers to design eco-friendly, less toxic and biodegradable Biosurfactants. Biosurfactants are the surface active agents synthesized from microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and yeast or excreted extracellularly. Amino acid surfactants formed another class of green and sustainable surfactants which is generally originated
Hydrocarbons are widely distributed in environment owing to its extensive use as pesticides, petroleum products or other organic compounds. Hydrocarbons being mutagenic and carcinogenic in nature, it has led to various serious threat to living form. Pollution can ensue due to accidental spillage or leakages while handling and transportation of such compounds. Thus it becomes necessary to ensure safe removal and disposal of pollutants, to avoid further dispersal in different environmental layers.
