Degradation of Fluorobenzene by Rhizobiales Strain F11 via ortho Cleavage of 4-Fluorocatechol and Catechol
ABSTRACT The aerobic metabolism of fluorobenzene by Rhizobiales sp. strain F11 was investigated. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis showed that 4-fluorocatechol and catechol were formedExpand

Labrys portucalensis sp. nov., a fluorobenzene-degrading bacterium isolated from an industrially contaminated sediment in northern Portugal.
A detailed classification of a novel bacterial strain, designated F11(T), capable of degrading fluorobenzene as a sole carbon and energy source, was performed by using a polyphasic approach. ThisExpand

Microbial degradation of 17β -estradiol and 17α -ethinylestradiol followed by a validated HPLC-DAD method
This work aimed at studying the biodegradation of two estrogens, 17α -estradiol (E2) and 17β -ethinylestradiol (EE2), and their potential metabolism to estrone (E1) by microbial consortia. TheExpand

Bioaugmentation of a rotating biological contactor for degradation of 2-fluorophenol.
The performance of a laboratory scale rotating biological contactor (RBC) towards shock loadings of 2-fluorophenol (2-FP) was investigated. During a period of ca. 2 months organic shock loadings ofExpand
