Effect of diesel fuel on growth of selected plant species


Effect of diesel fuel on growth of selected plant species

Diesel oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons with an average carbon number of C8-C26. The majority of components consist of alkanes, both straight chained and branched and aromatic compounds including mono-, di- and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Regardless of this complexity, diesel oil can be readily degraded by a number of soil microorganisms making it a likely candidate for bioremediation.
