The current biotechnology situation involves the discovery of a novel class of biosorbents with a high capacity for heavy metal removal. Iron (Fe2+) is one of the heavy metal, which is commonly found in earth’s crust and also in industrial process like a mining operation, steel and ferroalloy based industrial effluents. In the present study, The ability of Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus fungal biomass to biosorption of iron was examined in relation to the effects of physical pretreatment such as heat, autoclaving, freeze-drying, and chemical pretreatment such as sodium hydroxide, commercial laundry detergent, formaldehyde, acetic acid, and dimethyl sulfoxide. In comparison to live biomass, the maximum biosorption capacity of A. niger and A. flavus biomass after physical pretreatment, subjected to freeze drying, was 1.79 mg/0.1 g and 1.04 mg/0.1 g, respectively. After chemical pretreatment, subjected to acetic acid, it was 1.89 mg/0.1 g and 1.61 mg/0.1 g.
