The participation of phenanthrene in phenol-coupling reactions mediated by horseradish peroxidase was investigated. Aqueous-phase concentrations of phenanthrene were observed to decrease dramatically with phenol as a result of the formation of precipitated products, suggesting a potential means for simultaneous treatment of phenolic contaminants and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) using peroxidase-mediated oxidative coupling processes. The studies reveal that phenanthrene removal from… CONTINUE READING
