Biodegradation of phenolic compounds in different ecosystems in Cochin

Imelda , Joseph (1997) Biodegradation of phenolic compounds in different ecosystems in Cochin. PhD thesis, Cochin University of Science and Technology.



The present study 'BIODEGRADATION OF PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS IN DIFFERENT ECOSYSTEMS IN COCHIN' is concentrated on estimation of phenolic compounds in different ecosystems during different seasons. Various micro-organisms like bacteria and actinomycetes active in biodegradation of phenol were also screened in all the seasons. Environmental parameters were estimated to know the effed of physico-chemical parameters on biodegradation of phenol. Laboratory experiments were conduded in order to determine the rate of biodegradation at different concentrations of phenol using mixed and individual strains of bacteria. The viability of aerobic heterotrophs in selected phenolic compounds were also tested at different concentrations.
