Biodegradation by an arthrobacter species of hydrocarbons partitioned into an organic solvent

Biodegradation by an arthrobacter species of hydrocarbons partitioned into an organic solvent

Applied and Environmental Microbiology 57(5): 1441-1447

The role of an organic solvent in controlling the means by which bacteria degrade hydrophobic substrates such as naphthalene and n-hexadecane was investigated. The hydrocarbons were dissolved in 2,2,4,4,6,8,8-heptamethylnonane. The extent of mineralization achieved by an Arthrobacter str. increased with greater volumes of the solvent. Rates of partitioning of naphthalene into the aq. phase from the solid phase or from heptamethylnonane did not limit mineralization.
