The biotransformation of 1,4-dioxane, a endrocrine disrupting chemical was achieved using different bacterial strains and their consortia. Three different bacterial isolates were screened on their ability to grow with 50 mg/L 1,4-dioxane in the basal mineral medium. Then the isolates were tested for its efficiency to biotransform 1000 mg/L 1,4-dioxane at varying period of time; 24-120 h. Read More
