The environmental fates of chlorinated 4-nitrophenols, 2,6-dichloro-4-nitrophenol (2,6-DCNP) and 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol (2C4NP), mediated via microbial catabolism have attracted great attention due to their high toxicity and persistence in the environment. In this study, a strain of Ensifer sp. 22-1 that was capable of degrading both 2,6-DCNP and 2C4NP was isolated from a halogenated aromatic-contaminated soil sample. Read More
