Microbial degradation of xenobiotic, aromatic pollutants in humic water

Larsson, Per LU ; Okla, Lennart LU and Tranvik, Lars (1988) In Applied and Environmental Microbiology 54(7). p.1864-1867
Abstract
The microbial degradation of a number of "4C-labeled, recalcitrant, aromatic pollutants, including

trichloroguaiacol and di-, tri-, and pentachlorophenol, was investigated in aquatic model systems in the

laboratory. Natural, mixed cultures of microorganisms in the water from a brown-water lake with a high

content of humic compounds mineralized all of the tested substances to a higher degree than did microorganisms

in the water from a clear-water lake. Dichlorophenol was the most rapidly degraded pollutant.
