Two marine yeast isolates were tested for their tolerance on YPD Agar medium and adapted further in YPD liquid medium containing 1mM of Cr (VI). Effect of Cr (VI) on the growth kinetics was studied. Morphological changes were observed
by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy. Bioaccumulation of Cr (VI) by using both yeast cells were studied with respect to pH, temperature, agitation, cell numbers and initial metal concentrations. Accumulation of the metal by the yeast cells was demonstrated by using transmission electron microscopy. The results indicated that the yeast cells have
potential for removal of Cr (VI) ions.
