Dehalogenation of chlorinated aromatic compounds using a hybrid bioinorganic catalyst on cells of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans


A novel bioinorganic catalyst was obtained via reduction of Pd(II) to Pd0 on to the surface of cells of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans at the expense of H2. Palladised biomass, supplied with formate or H2 as an electron donor, catalysed the dehalogenation of 2-chlorophenol and polychlorinated biphenyls. In the example of 2,3,4,5-tetrachlorobiphenyl, the… (More)
