Detoxification of high concentrations of trinitrotoluene by bacteria

Abstract

The ability of the strains-destructors of various aromatic compounds to utilize trinitrotoluene (TNT) up to concentration of 70 mg/l was shown. An increase in the TNT concentration from 100 to 150 mg/l did not inhibit its conversion rate by the Kocuria palustris RS32 strain. The Acinetobacter sp. VT11 strain utilized TNT as a sole substrate for growth; 3,5… (More)
