Molecular mechanisms of biocatalytic desulfurization of fossil fuels

Abstract

The development of biocatalytic desulfurization of petroleum fractions may allow its use in place of conventional hydrodesulfurization (HDS). Dibenzothiophene (DBT) is representative of a broad range of sulfur heterocycles found in petroleum that are recalcitrant to desulfurization via HDS. Rhodococcus sp. strain IGTS8 has the ability to convert DBT to 2… (More)
