Biodegradation of 2-chloroethanol by freely suspended and adsorbed immobilized Pseudomonas putida US2 in soil


The degradation of 2-chloroethanol by Pseudomonas putida US2 was investigated in batch, repeated batch and continuous cultures especially in a packed-bed fermenter with sand. The degradation of 2-chloroethanol was connected with a release of protons, which led to a decrease of the pH in the medium. Higher initial concentration than 25 mM 2-chloroethanol… (More)
