4-Chloroaniline has been released into the environment due to extensive use in chemical industries and intensive agriculture; hence, it becomes one of the hazardous pollutants in the priority pollutant list. In this study, three gram-negative bacteria were enriched and isolated from agricultural soil as 4-chloroaniline-degrading bacteria. They were identified as Acinetobacter baumannii CA2, Pseudomonas putida CA16 and Klebsiella sp. CA17. They were able to utilize 4-chloroaniline as a sole… CONTINUE READING
