Automobile radiators, thermophilic bacteria, Thermoanaerobacter, Clostridium
This study was based on the isolation of thermophilic bacteria from automobile radiators. Water sample from three different automobile radiators were used for the screening of thermophilic bacteria at 70°C and pH 7.65 using nutrient broth medium and their
