Rising pollution and heavy metal contamination is one of the most vital concerns across the globe. Presently, research on antimony pollution grabs the attention due to its application in industry. Heavy metal pollution and contamination needs proper regulation and monitoring. Hence, in this article we have encompassed the significant molecular mechanisms such as the operons and efflux transporters involved as well as biochemical processes like oxidation, reduction and biomethylation mediated by As and Sb resistant bacteria that considerably help in bioremediation. This article summarizes most of the common techniques employed by bacteria to combat Sb pollution.
