Degradation of tetrachloromethane was examined in the three strictly anaerobic bacteria, Acetobacterium woodii. Desulfobacterium autotrophicum and Methanobacterium thermoauwtrophicum. When incubated under anaerobic conditions in reduced buffer, suspensions of each organism degraded CCI4 by both reductive and substitutive mechanisms. The products formed… CONTINUE READING
