Degradation of branched octylphenol was studied in abacterial culture of a Sphingomonas sp. strain.Octylphenol is considered to be the most stabledegradation intermediate formed from the correspondingnonionic octylphenol polyethoxylates surfactantsduring biological wastewater treatment. Sinceoctylphenol can exert estrogenic effects in wildlife,a detailed study of its biodegradation is warranted.The aerobic microbiological transformation ofoctylphenol was examined with and without the additionof… CONTINUE READING
