  • Toxic coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (Co-PCBs) were used as substrates for a degradation experiment with white-rot fungus, Phlebia brevispora TMIC33929, which is capable of degrading polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins. Eleven PCB congener mixtures (7 mono-ortho- and 4 non-ortho-PCBs) were added to the cultures of P. brevispora and monitored by high resolution gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS). Five PCB congeners, 3,3′,4,4′-tetrachlorobiphenyl, 2,3,3′,4,4… CONTINUE READING
