Experiments to elucidate the 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT)-transforming activity of Clostridium bifermentans LJP-1 identified reductive TNT transformations that ultimately produced as end products triaminotoluene (TAT) and phenolic products of TAT hydrolysis. An adduct of TAT, apparently formed by condensation of TAT and pyruvic aldehyde (methyl glyoxal), was also detected.
