Rhizoremediation of phenol and chromium by the synergistic combination of a native bacterial strain and Brassica napus hairy roots
Abstract A bacterial strain resistant to phenol and Cr (VI) was isolated from an industrial polluted soil of Cordoba province (Argentina), which was identified as Pantoea sp. FC 1. This microorganismExpand
