The kinetics of oxidation of aqueous acidic ferrous sulphate by Thiobacillus ferrooxidans has been studied in a batch reactor. The contribution of cell wall envelopes to the oxidation rate has been shown to be negligible. A model which accounts for the oxidation of Fe2+, death of bacteria due to Fe3+ poisoning, existence of an optimal pH and precipitation of Fe3+ has been proposed. The model is able to predict the concentration of Fe2+ and pH quite satisfactorily. The predictions of Fe3+ are not so accurate because of simplifying assumptions made about its precipitation.
