Abstract

During the past year, the range of environmentally relevant chlorinated aliphatic compounds known to serve as growth substrates for pure cultures of bacteria has been extended and novel reactions for the aerobic co-metabolic transformation of chloroaliphatics have been reported. The biochemistry of chloroaliphatics degradation in the new aerobic isolates is still unexplored, but progress has been made in understanding some of the anaerobic dehalogenation reactions.
