Microbially mediated biodegradation of hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5- triazine by extracellular electron shuttling compounds.


The potential for humic substances to stimulate the reduction of hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) was investigated. This study describes a novel approach for the remediation of RDX-contaminated environments using microbially mediated electron shuttling. Incubations without cells demonstrated that reduced AQDS transfers electrons directly to RDX… (More)
