||The obligately lithoautotrophic bacterium Acidithiobacillus
thiooxidans grew with sulfur as energy source at
a doubling time of 20 h to a final cell concentration of
0.24 g cell dry weight/l. Addition of 100 mM aluminum sulfate to the medium had little effect on growth (as opposed to addition of 200 mM).
