In this work, we show that the fungal strain Graphium sp. FIB4 was able to use phenol as the sole carbon source. Higher degradation of phenol was accomplished by alginate-immobilized mycelial mass than by mycelial suspensions of Graphium sp. FIB4. Free mycelium exhibited higher degradation rates when compared with the alginate-immobilized mycelium in the presence of 14 mM of phenol or less. Above this concentration, degradation rates by free mycelium decreased and the immobilized mycelium… CONTINUE READING
