Biodegradation of s-triazine xenobiotics

  title={Biodegradation of s-triazine xenobiotics},
  author={Alasdair M. Cook},
Biodegradation of xenobiotic compounds is examined with s-triazines as an example and with biological treatment of wastewater containing striazines as an aim. s-Triazines have been termed recalcitrant, but examination of the literature indicates that a potential for biodegradation exists. Ni t rogenl imi ted enr ichment cultures yield organisms able to degrade by-products of the industrial synthesis of s-triazine herbicides as sources of nitrogen. The choice of inoculum for these enrichments is… CONTINUE READING
