Microcalorimetric was used to analyze the toxic action of Pb2+ on the metabolic activities. Pb2+ has a stimulating effect on Candida humicola and Bacillus subtilis growth at low concentration and an inhibitory influence at high concentration. This investigation aims at evaluating the toxic action of Pb(II) on the Candida humicola and Bacillus subtilis by microcalorimetric technique.
