Use of a Coculture To Enable Current Production by Geobacter sulfurreducens

MetadataShow full item record
AbstractMicrobial fuel cells often produce more electrical power with mixed cultures than with pure cultures. Here, we show that a coculture of a nonexoelectrogen (Escherichia coli) and Geobacter sulfurreducens improved system performance relative to that of a pure culture of the exoelectrogen due to the consumption of oxygen leaking into the reactor.
