Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) included with the commercial mixture Delor 103 were degraded by immobilized cells of aerobic bacterial strain Pseudomonas sp. 2. The ability of the strain to metabolise selected tri- and tetrachlorobiphenyls, and the site of primary attack of the biphenyl skeleton were investigated. It was observed that the amount of residual PCBs was 1-48% of the original PCBs after three weeks of incubation. Identified metabolites indicate that the used bacterial strain… CONTINUE READING
