An experimental study was carried out to select a suitable synthetic medium for growth and As(III) biosorption by an As(III) resistant strain Aspergillus niger X300 .For this purpose different medium components were optimized one by one.A synthetic medium composed of glucose , 12%; (NH4)SO4, 0.8%; K2HPO4, 0.01% ; KH2PO4, 0.01%; CaCl2. 2H2O, 0.03%; NaCl, 0.02%; MgSO4.7H2O, 0.03 µg/ml; MnSO4.4H20, 0.02 µg/ml; FeSO4.7H20, 0.02 µg/ml and thiamine-HCl, 0.02µg/ml was strongly recommended for this purpose.
