Optimization of parameters for improvement of phenol degradation by Rhodococcus UKMP-5M using response surface methodology

Abstract

Phenol is a toxic compound and is one of the major pollutants contained in the waste water from petroleum and its downstream industries. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize medium composition and culture condition for enhancement of growth of Rhodococcus UKMP-5M and phenol degradation rate in shake flask cultures. Phenol and (NH4)2SO4… (More)
