The ability of bacteria collection strains g.g. Pseudomonas, Rhodococcus, Acinetobacte and Micrococcus to use Cr (VI) as terminal electron acceptor during breathing has been studied. It has been shown that deferent collection stains of bacteria which was not addapted to Cr (VI) prior to the batch experiments, can breath anaerobicaly and use Cr (VI) as terminal electron acceptor without imitation of anaerobic condition. These cultures reduce Cr (VI) so effectively in aerobic condition.
