Microbial Degradation of Synthetic Polymers, Solvents and Surfactants
Entry ID: MDSPSS


Summary
Abstract: Screening of micoorganisms which can assimilate synthetic polymers,
organic solvents and surfactants as a sole carbon and energy source
evaluated the biodegradability of these compounds in nature. The
studies on the metabolisms of these compounds showed their fates in
nature, that is, the acceptability of metabolic products in
ecosystems. The biodegradation studies lead to the molecular design of
synthetic polymers, organic solvents and surfactants and the improved
biological treatment system in future.
