Biodegradation of nitrobenzene by a sequential anaerobic-aerobic process


Nitrobenzene was completely degraded by mixed cultures using a sequential anaerobic-aerobic treatment process. Under anaerobic conditions in a fixed-bed column aniline was formed from nitrobenzene through gratuitous reduction by cells of sewage sludge. This reaction was accelerated by the addition of glucose. Complete mineralization of aniline was… (More)
