The desulfurizing bacterium Desulfobacterium anilini was isolated and subsequently identified by the Department of Botany & Microbiology; University of Lagos, Nigeria. The effects of selective removal of sulfur-containing hydrocarbons in diesel using the Desulfobacterium anilini isolated from petroleum products-polluted soil was investigated in this study. They exhibited very high desulfurizing ability towards diesel at 30C and normal atmospheric pressure. Gas chromatography analysis with a… Expand
