Degradation of mixtures of monochlorophenols and phenol as substrates for free and immobilized cells of Alcaligenes sp. A7-2


The biodegradation of the three isomeric monochlorophenols 2-(2CP), 3- (3CP) and 4-chlorophenol (4CP) and phenol by the constructed strain Alcaligenes sp. A7-2 was investigated. Mineralization took place in the order: phenol >4CP >2CP >3CP, whereas 3CP was mineralized only co-metabolically. In substrate mixtures with phenol, degradation of 4CP was… (More)
