Biodegradation of pyridine and alpha-picoline (2-methyl pyridine) by Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes-KPN and Nocardia sp. isolated from garden soil were investigated in batch culture experiments. Pyridine and alpha-picoline (50-200 mg L(-1)) were used as sole source of carbon and energy in the investigation. The kinetic constants were evaluated for pyridine… CONTINUE READING
