Utilization of aromatic compounds by phototrophic purple nonsulfur bacteria


Biodegradation of aromatic compounds byRhodopseudomonas blastica andRhodospirillum rubrum appears to be lacking in the literature. The above species grew phototrophically (illuminated anaerobic conditions) on a variety of organic compounds. They were found to degrade benzoate, benzyl alcohol, 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxybenzoate (Syringate) and 4-hydroxy-3… (More)
