Degradation of Delor 103, a technical mixture of polychlorinated biphenyls, by selected bacteria


, : Degradation of Delor 103, a technical mixture of polychlorinated biphenyls, by selected bacteria. World Journal of Microbiology & Biotechnology 9(6): 648-652

Ability to utilize a technical mixture of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), Delor 103, as the sole carbon source, has been tested in 14 bacterial strains. For the five best growing strains (Alcaligenes latus, Alcaligenes eutrophus, Comamonas testosteroni, Micrococcus varians and Pseudomonas putida), the dependence of the degradation of individual PCB congeners on the number of chlorine substituents is discussed.
