Contribution to the Detection and Identification of Oxidation Metabolites of Nonylphenol in Sphingomonas sp. strain TTNP3


Sphingomonas sp. strain TTNP3 has been previously described as a bacterium that is capable of degrading the technical mixture of nonylphenol (NP) isomers and also the 4(3′,5′-dimethyl-3′-heptyl)-phenol single isomer of NP. Until recently, 3,5-dimethyl-3-heptanol was the only reported metabolite of 4(3′,5′-dimethyl-3′-heptyl)-phenol. A short time ago, the… (More)
