The microbial degradation of organic substrates often exhibits a fractionation of stable isotopes which leads to an enrichment of the heavier isotope in the remaining substrate. The use of this effect to quantify the amount of biodegraded substrate in contaminated aquifers requires that the isotope fractionation factor is constant in time and space. In many natural and engineered systems the bioavailable concentration at the location of the enzymes differs from the average bulk concentration of… CONTINUE READING
