Earlier work showed that the biodegradation of a commercial linear monoalkyldiphenyletherdisulfonate surfactant as a carbon source for microbial growth leads to the quantitative formation of corresponding disulfodiphenylether carboxylates (DSDPECs), which were not degraded. alpha-Proteobacterium strain DS-1 (DSM 13023) catalyzes these reactions. These DSDPECs have now been characterized by high-pressure liquid chromatography coupled via an electrospray interface to a mass spectrometer. DSDPECs… CONTINUE READING
