Degradation of dicamba by an anaerobic consortium enriched from wetland soil

Applied and Environmental Microbiology 59(7): 2332-2334
Degradation of dicamba by an anaerobic consortium enriched from wetland soil
The biodegradability of dicamba was investigated under anaerobic conditions with a consortium enriched from wetland soil. Degradation proceeded through an initial demethylation reaction, forming 3,6-dichlorosalicylic acid, followed by reductive dechlorination, forming 6-chlorosalicylic acid. The consortium, consisting of a sulfate reducer, three methanogens, and a fermenter, was unable to mineralize the aromatic ring.
