Growing energy needs and concerns about environmental pollution have stimulated increased interest in the research and application of microbial fuel cell (MFC) systems. The objective of this study was to investigate possible electricity production with nitrogenous heterocyclic (N-heterocyclic) compounds degradation in the by: from book Microorganisms in led to a renewed interest in the biodegradation of heterocyclic compounds. Hence, we investigated the microbial degradation of pyridine and some of its alkylated.
Hepatotoxic microcystins that are produced by freshwater cyanobacteria pose a risk to public health. These compounds may be eliminated by enzymatic degradation. Here, we review the enzymatic pathways for the degradation of these hepatotoxins, some of which are newly discovered processes. The efficiencies of microcystin biodegradation pathways are documented in several . Thus, most books on heterocyclic chemistry are mainly devoted to the reactivity of aromatic compounds. Tables – indicate models of the heterocyclic derivatives described in these volumes. Table shows simple heterocyclic systems of three or four members. In. Indole and its derivatives, including 3-methylindole and 4-chloroindole, are environmental pollutants that are present worldwide. Microbial degradation of indole and its derivatives can occur in several aerobic and anaerobic pathways; these pathways involve different known and characterized genes. In this minireview, we summarize and explain the microbial degradation of indole, indoleacetic. Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g. oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds (such as pyridine or quinoline.

Microbial degradation of nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur heterocyclic compounds under anaerobic conditions: Studies with aquifer samples . This study aims to establish a systematic method to optimize the bacterial consortium for the simultaneous biodegradation of multixenobiotics in wastewater. Three nitrogen heterocyclic compounds (NHCs), pyridine, quinoline, and carbazole, were chosen as the target compounds with each about mg/L. Different consortia originated from six bacteria for degrading pyridine . pathways, and microbial taxonomybut also habitat range of anaerobic microorganisms. The purpose of this paper is to present a critical review of the available scientific informa-tion on the anaerobic microbial metabolism of homo- and heterocyclic aromatic compounds, withemphasisonvarious anaerobic microbial processes and metabolic pathways. The comparatively recent advent of man-made chemicals has now challenged the environment: where degradation does not occur, accumulation must perforce take place. Surprisingly though, even the most recalcitrant of molecules are gradually broken down and very few materials are truly impervious to microbial attack.
