A variety of commercial surfactants were tested to determine their effect on polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) transformation by Pseudomonas LB400. Initial tests determined that most surfactants were fully or partially able to solubilize the PCB congeners 2,5,2′-chlorobiphenyl (CBP), 2,4,2′,4′-CBP, 2,3,5,2′,5′-CBP and 2,4,5,2′,4′,5′-CBP, at concentrations above the surfactants' critical micelle concentration (CMC). Surfactants were also found to have no negative effect on bacterial survival, as… CONTINUE READING
