Abstract

Methyl fluoride and dimethyl ether were previously identified as inhibitors of ammonia oxidation and N2O production in autotrophic nitrifying bacteria. We demonstrate that methyl fluoride and dimethyl ether are substrates for ammonia monooxygenase and are converted to formaldehyde and a mixture of methanol and formaldehyde, respectively.
