The fate of four trichlorophenols (TCP), six dichlorophenols (DCP), and three monochlorophenols (CP), were studied in anaerobic propionate enrichment systems. TCPs were more toxic than DCPs and CPs; 2,4,5-TCP was most toxic to the propionate users among the 13 chlorophenols studied in this research. Most chlorophenols were dechlorinated reductively to less chlorinated compounds and/or phenol. Dechlorination at the ortho position was observed most frequently. The overall removal of the selected… CONTINUE READING
