AIMS The aim of this work was to study the biodegradation of benzyldimethylalkylammonium chloride (BAC) by Aeromonas hydrophila sp. K, an organism isolated from polluted soil and capable of utilizing BAC as sole source of carbon and energy. METHODS AND RESULTS High performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis was used to study BAC degradation pathway. It was shown that during BAC biodegradation, formation of benzyldimethylamine, benzylmethylamine… CONTINUE READING
