Recalcitrance of atrazine at low levels to aerobic and hydrogenotrophic microorganisms


, : Recalcitrance of atrazine at low levels to aerobic and hydrogenotrophic microorganisms. Biotechnology Letters 9(11): 811-816

Experiments with flow-through and batch reactor systems, incubated either under air or under hydrogen, confirm literature data that atrazine present at low concentrations in water is very recalcitrant to microbial metabolism. Only a temporary adsorption could be observed. Dimethylamine and cyanuric acid, added at trace levels, failed to induce breakdown of atrazine.

Two strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens, LMG 10141 and 10140, isolated from soil, cometabolised atrazine in water under hydrogenotrophic conditions. The degradation products were deethylatrazine and deisopropylatrazine while hydroxyatrazine was not...
