Microbial metabolism of N-nitrosodiethanolamine in lake water and sewage.


The carcinogenic nitrosamine, N-nitrosodiethanolamine (NDElA), was degraded in samples of sewage and two lake waters, and microorganisms were responsible for the transformation. However, the rate of NDElA disappearance was slow. In the samples of lake water, the rate and extent of NDElA metabolism varied with the time of year, and no disappearance occurred… (More)
