This study investigates dual element isotope fractionation during aerobic biodegradation of 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2-DCA) via oxidative cleavage of a C−H bond (Pseudomonas sp. strain DCA1) versus C−Cl bond cleavage by SN2 reaction (Xanthobacter autotrophicus GJ10 and Ancylobacter aquaticus AD20). Compound-specific chlorine isotope analysis of 1,2-DCA was performed for the first time, and isotope fractionation (εbulk Cl ) was determined by measurements of the same samples in three different… CONTINUE READING
