Dibenzo-p-dioxin (I) was rapidly degraded in ligninolytic cultures of the basidiomycete Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Lignin peroxidase (LiP) oxidized I to generate the following products: catechol (V), dibenzo-p-dioxin-2,3-quinone (VIII), 2-hydroxy-5-(2-hydroxyphenoxy)-1,4-benzoquinone (IX), 4,5-dihydroxy-1,2-benzoquinone (X), 2-(2-hydroxyphenoxy)-1,4-benzoquinone (XI), 4-hydroxy-1,2-benzoquinone (XII), and 1,2-benzoquinone (XIII). Identical products were formed when the reaction was conducted… CONTINUE READING
