The present study investigated growth and biodegradation of 4-bromophenol (4-BP) by Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6 in batch shake flasks as well as in a continuously operated packed bed reactor (PBR). Batch growth kinetics of A. chlorophenolicus A6 in presence of 4-BP followed substrate inhibition kinetics with the estimated biokinetic parameters value of μ max = 0.246 h−1, K i = 111 mg L−1, K s  = 30.77 mg L−1 and K = 100 mg L−1. In addition, variations in the observed and theoretical… CONTINUE READING
