Preliminary results on the novel use of the bacterium Thiobucillus ferrooxiduns (ATCCI 3598 and ATCC3302Q) for the micro-machining (or biomachining) of metals are reported. Biomacnining is a controlled microbiological process to selectively form microstructures on a metal work-piece by metal removal (or dissolution) using microorganisms. Applying copper and mild steel as work-pieces, i t was shown that the mass removed increased proportionately with machining time. In another experiment, the work-pieces were …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
