In this study, we investigated the microbial degradation of the phthalate esters (PAEs) dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), and change in microbial communities in mangrove sediment collected from 5 sampling sites along the Tanshui River in Taiwan. Aerobic degradation half-lives (t(1/2)) of DBP and DEHP ranged from 1.6 to 2.9 d and 5.0 to 8.3d, respectively. The addition of yeast extract (5mg/L), hydrogen peroxide (1mg/L), brij 35 (91 μM), humic acid (0.5 g/L… CONTINUE READING
