Bacterial decolorization and degradation of azo dyes: a review.
A variety of synthetic dyestuffs released by the textile industry pose a threat to environmental safety. Azo dyes account for the majority of all dyestuffs, produced because they are extensively usedExpand
Enhanced decolorization and biodegradation of textile azo dye Scarlet R by using developed microbial consortium-GR.
A developed consortium-GR completely decolorized an azo dye Scarlet R under static anoxic condition with an average decolorization rate of 16,666 microg h(-1); which is much faster than that of the pure cultures. Expand
Biodegradation of reactive textile dye Red BLI by an isolated bacterium Pseudomonas sp. SUK1.
Phytotoxicity testing with the seeds of Sorghum vulgare and Phaseolus mungo, showed more sensitivity towards the dye, while the products obtained after dye decolorization does not have any inhibitory effects. Expand
Decolorization and biodegradation of textile dye Navy blue HER by Trichosporon beigelii NCIM-3326.
Investigating various physicochemical parameters such as agitation, temperature, pH, cell concentration, initial dye concentration and different carbon and nitrogen sources to achieve maximum dye degradation by Trichosporon beigelii confirmed the biodegradation of Navy blue HER. Expand
Biodegradation of malachite green by Kocuria rosea MTCC 1532
Malachite green (50 mg/L) was completely decolorized under static anoxic condition within 5 h by bacteria Kocuria rosea MTCC 1532; however decolorization was not observed at shaking condition. K.Expand
Biodegradation of Methyl red by Galactomyces geotrichum MTCC 1360
Abstract Galactomyces geotrichum MTCC 1360 can decolorize triphenylmethane, azo and reactive high exhaust textile dyes. At shaking condition this strain showed 100% decolorization of a toxic azo dyeExpand
Kinetics and Mechanism of Reactive Red 141 Degradation by a Bacterial Isolate Rhizobium radiobacter MTCC 8161
A bacterium identified as Rhizobium radiobacter MTCC 8161 was isolated from effluent treatment plant of textile and dying industry of Ichalkaranji, India. The bacterial isolate Rhizobium radiobacterExpand
Evaluation of the efficacy of a bacterial consortium for the removal of color, reduction of heavy metals, and toxicity from textile dye effluent.
Cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and phytotoxicity studies carried out before and after decolorization of the textile effluent revealed the nontoxic nature of the biotreated sample. Expand
Decolorization and detoxification of Congo red and textile industry effluent by an isolated bacterium Pseudomonas sp. SU-EBT
The 16S rRNA sequence and biochemical characteristics revealed the isolated organism as Pseudomonas sp. SU-EBT. This strain showed 97 and 90% decolorization of a recalcitrant dye, Congo red (100 mgExpand
Enhanced biodegradation and detoxification of disperse azo dye Rubine GFL and textile industry effluent by defined fungal-bacterial consortium
Abstract In this study, a defined consortium-AP of Aspergillus ochraceus NCIM-1146 fungi and Pseudomonas sp. SUK1 bacterium was studied to assess its potential for enhanced decolorization andExpand
