The use of easily biodegradable chelates such as organic acids has been proposed to enhance bioavailability of heavy metals and accumulation into plants while avoiding leaching risks [21]. The production of organic acids by Serratia sp. K1RP-49 is shown in Fig. 3. The pH of the culture broth was decreased according to the growth of the K1RP-49. The amount of organic acids produced by the K1RP-49 were arranged in higher order as succinic acid (203 mg l−1 ) > oxalic acid (174 mg l−1 ) > maleic acid (137 mg l−1 ) > formic acid (117 mg l−1 ) > acetic acid (79 mg l−1 ) > citric acid (15 mg l−1 ) > malic acid (2 mg l−1 ).
